Ruto Embarks on Retreats, Seminars After Criticising OKA, NASA

Deputy President William Ruto held a two-day forum with leaders and stakeholders for an economic forum for Busia, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Naivasha, Nakuru counties.

The DP has been castigating the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals; Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula and Gideon Moi, and ODM’s Raila Odinga for holding seminars in preparation for the 2022 duel that is less than a year away.

The five together with President Uhuru Kenyatta held a meeting at State House Mombasa on Tuesday, August 10.

It is said that the head of state urged the OKA principals to back a Raila presidency.

According to Ruto, however, the leaders were only out to serve their selfish interests.

“Their agenda of going there was to discuss how to share power and plot against some of us who campaigned and assisted the President in securing votes to form the government,” he said.

Dr Ruto further averred that the former NASA chiefs were to blame for his fault out with the head of state and for derailing the Jubilee Party agenda.

“They abandoned the opposition, invaded our government, destroyed our party, sabotaged the Big four plan, changed our priority and brought a selfish agenda to change the constitution, and now after dismembering NASA they are camped at Statehouse,” he added.

But the DP’s criticism of political engagements especially amid the pandemic would seem hypocritical.

He (Ruto) cancelled public engagements on July 30 after Health CS Mutahi Kagwe banned political gatherings due to a surge in Covid-19 infections.

“The Covid-19 situation in the country has escalated as stated by Government of Kenya this afternoon. My scheduled public engagements are hereby postponed until further notice,” he said.

“We all should take individual responsibility and adhere to guidelines issued so as to control this ravaging pandemic.”
