Economist David Ndii on Wednesday claimed that the reason for the split in the Jubilee party was due to differences in how President Uhuru Kenyatta's allies engage in corruption in a manner that is different from the style of Deputy President William Ruto's camp.
Split in Jubilee caused by Ruto’s poor table manners- David Ndii
Source of DP Ruto's troubles
Ndii, who spoke during an interview with Tony Gachoka on KTN's Point Blank Show, alleged that the move aimed at ensuring that Ruto doesn’t take over from Kenyatta as the party successor.
The public intellectual further stated that the people who had given him the information were corrupt as the allegations they posed about the DP.
“I had had conversations with people close to Uhuru and they were hyperventilating this narrative about Ruto which was being created.
“It was a sort of legitimizing narrative of themselves, yet at the time, I could see a lot of corruption on their side and on Ruto’s side but they were only seeing the Deputy President type of corruption.
“I characterized it as a difference of table manners and not corruption,” remarked Ndii.
Ruto's frustrations was a collective effort from the Jubilee government
The once National Super Alliance strategist pointed out that the fight against corruption was weaponized for politics.
He explained that the fight against corruption was an analogy of taking the graft demon and put it in one person.
“What you see is the effort to take the demon of corruption and put it in one person and throw him over the cliff to cleanse the system, using Ruto.
“I gave the analogy of the Bible of how Jesus took demons out of people and put them in the pigs which jumped off the cliff.
"Ruto and his people are the pigs,” explained the Public Intellectual.
According to Ndii, the current problems facing the DP was a collective effort by the Jubilee government during its first term.
