BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI,9TH JAN 2018-Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday sought to put the records straight concerning claims that the selection of the cabinet secretaries had brought sharp division between him and the president.
Speaking during the burial of three Africa Independent Pentecostal Church (AIPCA) bishops in Meru County, Ruto said he does not have the powers to supervise who the president appoints or nominates to the cabinet.
The DP also sent a stern warning to the newly appointed and nominated Cabinet Secretaries saying that public officers should serve the public with integrity.
“Whoever will be appointed, you are appointed to serve all Kenyans. Stay clear of politics,” he said.
Ruto asked Kenyans to refrain from speculating on the formation of the Cabinet saying the president should be allowed the freedom to choose who will serve in government.
Ruto also dismissed any chances of holding dialogue with the opposition saying that the Jubilee administration is focused on developing the country.
“We almost spent the whole of last year politicking. We will not participate in any debate on who won the election or not,” said the Deputy President.
There has been Speculation of a split between the president and his deputy since last Friday when Mr. Kenyatta surprised the country by naming a part of his cabinet with the DP chosing to stay away from the event even though he was in his office.
