Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has weighed in on the simmering differences between President Uhuru Kenyatta, ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.
While speaking on Citizen TV on Tuesday morning, Kabogo warned Ruto and Raila to desist from escalating the political heat and tension in the country.
Ruto and his allies have been on the spotlight for attacking the government, decrying how Kenyatta reportedly betrayed them.
On the other end, Odinga and Kenyatta’s allies have been lashing back at DP Ruto accusing him of graft and attempting to sabotage the government.
Kabogo stated that the country was poised to move on without the two leaders who he accused of shifting focus to 2022 election and power struggle through the Building Bridges Initiative as Kenyans faced critical issues such as hunger, deaths and corruption.
“Kenyatta, DP Ruto and Raila Odinga should pull back their allies and issue constraints. This country does not belong to any of them.
“For example, one can feel nauseated when listening to what David Murathe keeps talking about,” Kabogo ranted.
Murathe was accused by DP Ruto of insubordination and leading a cabal hell-bent on preventing Ruto from being President.
The Jubilee Vice-Chairman hit back at Ruto accusing him of orchestrating the Covid-19 scandal where billions were allegedly embezzled.
Kabogo urged Kenyatta, Ruto and Odinga to have a sit-down and discuss crucial issues affecting the country.
He warned that Kenya was greater than them and did not belong to any individual whatsoever.
His calls came a few hours after DP Ruto reprimanded his allies Oscar Sudi (Kapseret MP) and Johanna Ng’eno (Emurua Dikir MP) for insulting the first family, specifically the head of state’s mother Mama Ngina Kenyata.
“Unsavoury words against mothers and Head of State is a NO, NO. No amount of anger justifies the use of offensive insulting language,” the DP wrote on social media.
