President Uhuru Kenyatta has not yet fired his deputy, William Ruto, despite the fact that Ruto disobeyed him and was corrupt, according to Jubilee Party Vice-Chairman David Murathe.
Murathe claims that the reason Uhuru and Ruto have not been on the same page since 2018 is because of their intractable political differences.
The former member of parliament for the Gatanga seat, Murathe, stated in an interview with one of the local dailies that the office of Deputy President is established by law.
“Remember that under the existing system, the only official who is protected by the constitution and cannot be removed is the Deputy President.
So you can appoint Kalonzo as Chief Minister today and remove him from office tomorrow. If it weren’t for the Deputy President, Ruto would have been dismissed by the President a long time ago. said Murathe.
