William Ruto, the deputy president, is taking no chances when it comes to the election in August.
Ruto informed international election observers about President Uhuru Kenyatta’s suspected control of the National Police Service while speaking to election observers in his office yesterday (NPS).
He expressed concerns about the usage of police during the elections on August 9 by alleging that the Head of State was the only one in charge of the police force.
As its council chair, the DP asserted that Uhuru would unquestionably make decisions that favored the coalition party Azimio la Umoja One Kenya.
He explained that Uhuru took over NPS on the grounds that Hillary Mutyambai, the inspector general of police, lacked competence.
Ruto claimed that the Inspector General was unable to make independent choices, which is why Uhuru had an impact on the police.
“Our IG is the most inept in the world, and that is a major issue. As things are going well, his incompetence might not be apparent, but when things advance and judgments must be taken, he is incapable. Simply said, he lacks the ability.
“To be honest, the President of Kenya, who is the head of Azimio, is the present IG. You might be curious if you were in our position and knew that the IG was a rival. What’s the first step? DP was posed.
Ruto said that aside from reservations about the employment of police, the Kenya Kwanza faction was pleased with election preparations.
“Your guess is as good as mine” if the president, who is already the chairman of our competition, has to make a judgment about certain crucial election-related issues when the going gets tough.
The actual competition, in my opinion, is between me and my employer, not his candidate.
Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who is touring the nation in advance of the elections on August 9, headed the delegation of election observers.
On Tuesday, the observers met with Martha Karua, the running mate of former prime minister Raila Odinga, and both of them.
