Jubilee MP addresses alleged rift between Uhuru and Ruto

Bitter rivals or bosom buddies?

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (front L) and his Deputy William Ruto (front R) leave the State House after Kenyatta's case at the International Criminal Court (ICC) was dropped, in the capital Nairobi in this December 5, 2014.

Nominated Jubilee Member of Parliament (MP) David Ole Sankok on Friday addressed the alleged rift between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Dr William Ruto.

Sankok asserted that claims of a rift are far from the truth.

The controversial MP told reporters that the two share an "inseparable bond".

"President and his Deputy have a solid bond. The two leaders came together in 2013 against odds after the 2007/08 post-election violence," Sankok narrated.

The MP went on to dismiss critics who have alleged that President Kenyatta will not endorse DP Ruto for the presidency in 2022.

He also echoed the DP's sentiments that he will support any candidate who will beat him in the party nominations for 2022.

"Jubilee had a pact of 10 years of Uhuru and another 10 years for Ruto.

"This still stands but for the purposes of democracy and any other candidate wishing to join the truce was welcome," Sankok stated.
