Ruto Warned Told What Might Happen To Him Once He Leaves The Office

A warning has been given to President William Ruto not to assume he will hold office indefinitely.

The high-ranking state and government employees that Ruto found in office and who were working for his successor Uhuru Kenyatta have been observed being sent packing since he took office in September.

Legislators in the opposition have criticized him for this, saying that he is setting a negative example that will be used against him when it is ultimately his turn to leave.

As long as Ruto is busy making this seem like the right course of action, they have warned that he will suffer the humiliation of witnessing his employees removed from office when the time comes for him to leave.

"Over time, that will be the pattern, and the next administration will force everyone who is currently working with him out of office, regardless of position. According to Saboti MP Caleb Amisi, he is also endangering his own people.

The Head of State replaced Reginal Commissioners employed by Uhuru last week through the Interior ministry; some of these individuals are suspected of engaging in political activity in support of Raila Odinga, a candidate for president of Azimio La Umoja, in the months leading up to the August election.

He reportedly met with his allies on December 5 and 6, at which point they put pressure on him and reportedly requested that he terminate the team for having backed Raila's opponent during the elections.

Godfrey Osotsi, a senator from Vihiga, told the Daily Nation that Ruto is using threats to attempt to coerce state officials into acting in a certain way, which is not good.

While Ruto's friends argue that changes are simply unavoidable when a new administration takes power, the congressman asserted that "threatening public servants reveals the extent of impunity in their ranks."
