President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Vice President, William Ruto, were divided in the year 2022, according to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
Speaking on Wednesday in Kericho County, Muturi—once a close ally of the president—confessed that part of his strategy included attempting to have retired John Cardinal Njue mediate their differences.
He claimed to have assembled a group of priests to mediate their differences, but it was unsuccessful since the President claimed to be overly preoccupied.
“In January 2020, I went to the bother of looking for former John Cardinal Njue to lead a small delegation of senior priests to President Kenyatta’s office to inquire about the causes of the rift and attempt to mend fences. But they were unsuccessful,” Muturi said.
Former Siakago MP Muturi claimed that Kenyans needed a credible justification for what happened between the two presidents, who were close during their first term in government.
Finally, he said that only Uhuru could explain what precipitated their acrimonious breakup with Ruto.
