No Way Back For DP As President Kenyatta Makes His Final Move To Get Rid of Ruto' s 'Traces '

It's no longer a secret that the relationship between the President and his Deputy is far from smooth with the two leaders reportedly not seeing each other eye to eye nowadays after they fell out during their second term. 

The two leaders started having troubles in 2018 when Uhuru had the famous handshake with President Kenyatta. The move did not settle well with Ruto who has since moved on to form his own political vehicle that he intends to use in 2022. 

Ruto's exit from the ruling jubilee party came as a surprise to many Kenyans who were expecting him to use the party for his 2022 presidential bid. There have been reports that the ruling party is planning to Rebrand so it can get rid of any traces associated with the Deputy President. 

The move by Uhuru's party is targeted at removing anything that could be associated with Ruto's URP. This includes the yellow and black party colors. 

According to a report by the Daily Nation, the party will be using Red and White as the official party colors from next year. The party has also removed the Two hands that acted as the party symbol and have instead replaced it with a dove carrying an olive branch which was synonymous with Uhuru's TNA party. 

The party leadership has also changed the party slogan from Tuko Pamoja to Mbele Pamoja. The move will no doubt raise further eyebrows on the severity of the breakdown in relation between the two premiers. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
