Confusion and Panic in Jubilee as Ruto contemplates tendering his RESIGNATION as DP.

Deputy President William Ruto is said to be contemplating resigning as Kenya’s Deputy President. Everything is said to be ready in order and sources say the DP will resign anytime from now and read a two pages resignation letter.

The decision is said to have been reached following a four hour meeting the DP had with his close allies at his Karen home on Wednesday night.

Ruto’s resignation is said to have been accelerated by the what President Uhuru Kenyatta said in defence of ODM Party leader Raila Odinga and mocking the DP. His (Ruto) allies have been accusing the handshake and the war against corruption as a way of blocking the deputy president from ascending to power come 2022.

Ruto’s Personal Assistant Mr Farouk Kibet after being contacted said that he was not aware of the matter and that its the DP to speak for himself.

Part of the leaked resignation letter reads “I regret I have failed to earn the trust of President Uhuru Kenyatta to enable me carry out my duties the deputy president of this country. Without fear, favour or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans.

William Ruto (born 21 December 1966)  has been Deputy President of Kenya since 2013. He served as the Acting President of Kenya between 5 and 8 October 2014 while President Uhuru Kenyatta was away at the Hague.He previously served in various ministerial positions including the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Higher Education Science and Technology. He was Secretary General of KANU, the former ruling political party, and MP for Eldoret North Constituency between December 1997 and January 2013. He won the seat in the 1997 Kenyan election after defeating Reuben Chesire. He was appointed to the position of Assistant Minister in the Office of the President by President Daniel arap Moi in 1998. He was promoted to be Minister for Home Affairs in August 2002. He also previously served as the Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Constitutional Reform in the 9th Parliament.

On 4 March 2013, he was elected as Deputy President alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta. They won on a Jubilee Coalition ticket.

Ruto was among the list of people who were tried at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for their involvement in Kenya’s 2007-8 electoral violence. However, the case was faced with challenges especially concerning withdrawal of key prosecution witnesses. In April 2016, the prosecution of Ruto was abandoned by the International Criminal Court.

  • Just wondering if DP want to resign coz of war on corruption which am sure he does not condone or handshake whose benefits he knows?

  • Let team handshake do their work!!

  • Am personally tired with this hustler… he should have resigned long ago… public figure involved in petty issues like looting government resources meant to benefit poor citizens… handshake has no any harm

  • Enter Comment we must go back to election.

  • Alternatively DP should mute and maintain low profile slowly as he monitors the actions of the duo (uhuraila) am sure it’s a scheme to trap raila to avoid naughty opposition actions.
