President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday gave a strong indication he might back his Deputy William Ruto for the top job when his term ends.
In his first tour of his Mt. Kenya backyard, President Kenyatta stated that he has never said he would not back Ruto.
Speaking in Sagana Lodge Uhuru said, “I have never said I will not support William Ruto; why do you keep insulting me? Yes, I said kumi kumi, yangu kumi iliisha lini?
He further castigated politicians whom he said keeps on abusing him.
“I have been busy with work, doing what you asked me to do. The rest have been making noise.”
Uhuru said he will use his remaining time in office to ensure there is no more bloodshed after elections.
He urged Mt. Kenya leaders to support BBI saying it’s not meant to fight or help anyone politically, but rather to help Kenyans.
” Pass the BBI bill for it will help those who voted for you,” Uhuru said.
On Saturday, Uhuru will meet with leaders from the region at Sagana State Lodge,
