However, fresh details suggests that this is not the case, and that close aides to the President are assisting Ruto in exchange for a stake in his government if he wins the presidency.
The arrangement, according to The Standard, is identical to what occurred in 2013, when Uhuru relinquished half of his Cabinet to the DP, but this time it is Ruto who would hand over a section of his cabinet.
Insiders confirm that the Uhuru team now wants to be permitted to nominate some Cabinet Members in Ruto's cabinet, according to details.
"There is a drive for a pre-election agreement before the August elections, and the talks are progressing."
"Let us provide time for the talks; things will become clearer with time," a Rift Valley MP aligned with Ruto stated.
