Uhuru and Ruto, who were initially the closest of political buddies, have since fallen out, with each firing shots at the other when they get the chance.
Uhuru has also been seen to cut ties with the DP, with the DP's allies accusing him of using his power and the state machinery under him to harass Ruto.
Kindiki says that this is indeed happening, and is something that the President was planning on implementing even when they were together.
The lawmaker, a lawyer, claims that Uhuru was already making plans for Ruto when they were campaigning for the Jubilee's reelection in 2017.
Speaking while accompanying Ruto to Tharaka Nithi on Saturday, he stated that this is why Uhuru ended up betraying all his allies who are close to the DP.
“But when we elected Uhuru for the second term he betrayed us. We came to discover that he had already decided he was going to betray all his lieutenants during his second term,” he said, reports Daily Nation.
He regretted that Uhuru now likes ODM leader Raila Odinga more than Ruto, even after promising to keep the DP and all those who were with them close.
The leader said that they have nothing against Uhuru despite what he has done to them, but they will not let him impose Raila on Kenyans as their President.
“To the outgoing President we are saying that we still respect you despite what you have done to us and we will respect you even in your retirement. But please don’t try to mess us further. We are fed up so please get your project, Mr Odinga and go home together," the parliamentarian is further quoted.
