Ruto attends Cabinet meeting amid bitter fallout with Uhuru

Deputy President William Ruto attended a Cabinet meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday.

The President’s Cabinet met amidst a bitter fallout with his deputy who’s constitutionally a member of the highest Executive organ.

“His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta is today, at State House, Nairobi, chairing a full Cabinet Meeting during which several matters of national and international importance will be discussed,” State House said in a statement.

Ruto on May 1 accused the President of failing to convene a Cabinet meeting for the previous two years.

The President had accused the DP of absconding obligation of their second time period questioning why he had not resigned to present room for him to nominate another person.

The two started their time period in 2013 with a public present of camaraderie that was punctuated by donning comparable outfits, probably the most outstanding being their white shirts and purple ties once they launched names of the primary Cabinet members.

But as their reign comes to finish they can’t shake arms with one another, preferring the Namaste salute at any time when they stumble upon each other like in the course of the funeral occasions for late President Mwai Kibaki two weeks in the past. 

The present state of their engagement is opposite to the spirit displayed throughout their first Cabinet upon taking on energy in 2013.

During the President’s first Cabinet meeting on June 6, 2013, the Head of State implored members to work as a group and give attention to service supply.

“You must take charge of your ministries, work as a team and get down to the business of serving the Kenyan people who are anxious to see the government deliver on its promises,” President Kenyatta was quoted saying in a dispatch by the State House press group that day.
