Deputy President William Ruto advised politicians to stay away from his relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta and stop counseling him on how to deal with the head of state.
Speaking to Kaheti in the Mukurwe-ini constituency in Nyeri County yesterday, an angry Ruto said he was fed up with lecturing on a daily basis about how to conduct business within a party he was instrumental in winning.
He said that his support for his boss began back in 2003 and long before he was facing criminal proceedings before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. "You should always keep in mind that we came to my boss from afar, our relationship was well founded before President Kenyatta became head of state," Ruto said.
