Photos:My bond with Ruto is solid strong, Uhuru tells mammoth crowd in Bomet

President Uhuru Kenyatta has expressed his confidence in Deputy President William Ruto and said those wishing to see squabbles between the top Jubilee leaders will be disappointed.

Uhuru was speaking in Bomet where he toured the Rift valley region amidst growing rift between the DP and Bomet governor Isaac Rutto.

He said his bond with the DP was solid strong and asked the residents to continue supporting him and his government

Uhuru said he was more than satisfied with the Deputy President’s performance as well as how closely they were working together.

“I am very happy with how we work closely with the Deputy President. But for some people, if there is no political conflict, they are not satisfied. Tell them there is a new generation of leaders whose approach is different,” he said.

Uhuru cautioned some Jubilee leaders who have developed a penchant for engaging in controversy to stop disrupting the Government’s development agenda.

Speaking at Bomet Stadium, Uhuru said those wishing for rifts within the Jubilee Government and constantly trying to create false narratives should realise that they are engaging in futile errands.

“Respect leadership and do not disrupt our agenda by using every opportunity to oppose development for the people. We will not be able to achieve our development objectives if we do not unite,” he said.

Deputy President William Ruto, on his part, said he was contented with the position he holds in Government and also ruled out any possibility of rifts ever developing between him and the President.

“When you voted for us, did you send me to fight with the President like what used to happen in the coalition government which was created through force. We are not fools to form a Government and then start fighting each other instead of working for the people,” he said.

He said those who are creating controversies within Jubilee with the hope that they might get some higher leadership positions should learn to be patient.

“If you do not have the patience to be led then you do not have what it takes to lead,” he said.

Ruto said those opposing the Jubilee agenda should know that they are swimming against the tide. “If you have doubt, the writing is on the wall for you,” he said.

More than Sh14 million was raised for Africa Gospel Church with President Kenyatta contributing Sh5 million and the Deputy President contributing Sh2 million.
