Deputy President William Ruto has retaliated against his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, saying he cannot deny him credit for the Jubilee government’s achievements.
Ruto said it would be dangerous for someone to dismiss his contribution while speaking in Likuyani, Kakamega County, on Tuesday, a day after President Kenyatta questioned his role in his administration.
“You can’t take credit for the various things we’ve accomplished as a government from me as Deputy President.” “It’s not going to happen, my friends,” he stated emphatically.
Ruto who severed ways with his boss – President Kenyatta- due to his political ambitions to succeed him – stressed that he will not be cowed into succumbing to threats and intimidation from his critics who continue to undermine his role.
He noted that he is ready to face his competitors at the August polls where he exuded confidence that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance will emerge victorious with a landslide win.
