The political grapevine has been awash with reports of Ruto being rewarded with a ministerial position in the Devolution or Agriculture docket after he endorsed President Kenyatta’s re-election ahead of the October 26 repeat election.

“I have not discussed that with anyone,” Ruto remarked during an interview with a local newspaper.
The former NASA co-principal used the interview to clarify that he had not defected to the Jubilee party adding that he was only supporting President Kenyatta’s re-election while still holding retaining his position as leader of Chama Cha Mashinani.
