The two leaders disagreed and attacked each other at every opportunity they have, According to US State Department sources, one of the reasons the president never wanted to have a personal relationship with the DP is that he doesn't like having to get DP Ruto's permission before making any public statements. It gives the impression that the DP is a co-chair.
It is also assumed that deputy President William Ruto posted spies at the State so that they could observe Uhuru and keep him informed of his every move without consulting him.
In recent months, President Uhuru Kenyatta said the situation began to deteriorate when his deputy began criticizing the government he serves. According to Uhuru, the DP has focused on its presidential ambitions, which is their constitutional prerogative, while confounding its agenda for the people by criticizing the administration they serve.However, Ruto's allies argue that it is wrong for a two-term president to choose a successor for a "personal project".
