Tensions between the Jubilee party leaders continue to grow as The president Uhuru Kenyatta and his DP William Ruto seemingly disagree on a lot of issues recently. In a closely guarded meeting between the two at statehouse, the rift between the two continued to grow as the DP received a stern lecture from his boss according to inside reports.

Ruto who was summoned in the morning to State House, Nairobi, is said to have been kept waiting for at least two hours after arrival before he could see the president. Emerging reports say that the President used the meeting to express his displeasure with his deputy’s “outright rebellious conduct” and his opposition to Uhuru’s attempt to unite the country by working with Raila Odinga.

People Daily reports that the President told Ruto to his face that he has to stop the insubordination as well as frustrating his (Uhuru’s) unity efforts. “He (Uhuru) told the DP that if he thought he was going to stop him from working with Raila in the unity bid he was daydreaming”.

Ruto is said to have raised concern over Raila’s role in government and had questioned why he seemed to be given immense powers. “He wanted his boss to tell him what role Raila is playing in government, particularly on the issue of senior government officials including Cabinet Secretaries consulting him,” the paper writes.

Addressing Nakuru residents, the President recently warned anyone trying to intimidate him over the BBI. “I will not be shaken. That is the position I have taken and I will move forward in that direction. I want to ensure Kenyans enjoy peace during elections every five years.”
