Yesterday it was a dramatic moment for Deputy President William Ruto after Gideon denied him the opportunity to see the former President.Ruto was forced to wait for 2 hours and four minutes. During the wait, he made 23 frantic calls.
A source that accompanied Ruto said after Gideon refused to pick Ruto’s calls, the DP broke down into tears. However, his aides hid him from the public after it was evident he was overwhelmed.
Ruto’s mission was to ask for forgiveness before Moi rests. This follows a popular statement the former president made about a year ago, which went like this:’mwambie huyo kijana arudishe vitu yangu”.Moi was telling President Uhuru Kenyatta when he visited him at Kabarak last year. We don’t know which “vitu yangu” Moi as referring to but it’s evident Moi is hurt.
Kenyans are wondering why Moi allowed Raila to visit him yet the two have never looked eye to eye for 15 years and he could allow Ruto to see him.But the reasons are clear, Gideon is salivating on the big seat and he seems to be the biggest threat to the DP.Gideon is also bitter after Ruto referred to him as ‘uncircumcised’
