In a statement that left no doubt that he is keenly following the developments and is not impressed, DP Ruto came out breathing fire and urged the party supporters to ignore imposters who were rejected by the electorate and are now purporting to be speaking for party leadership.

"All Jubilee party supporters should ignore and treat with utter contempt rebels and those rejected by the electorate who now deceptively purport to speak for the party leadership.

"Let's give Mariga our flag bearer moral, material and prayerful support. Victory is surely beckoning," Ruto wrote on Twitter.

Shebesh stirred Jubilee on Friday when she sensationally claimed that she was in State Hose o the day when DP Ruto accessed it through the back-door and pressured Uhuru into endorsing and taking photos with Mariga.

She dismissed the whole exercise and photos that were circulated on social media as a charade.

Uhuru under pressure at tense meeting to endorse Mariga

Shebesh who was breathing fire at a women’s meeting in Kibra revealed that she was at State House on the day that DP Ruto went to State House and witnessed the whole drama on the day that photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta endorsing Mariga emerged.

Hiyo siku mnasikia ya kweka kofia mimi nilikuwa statehouse. Mimi najua namna waliingia state house na mlango ya nyuma. Mimi najua jinsi waliweka pressure ya hiyo piha mliona (On the day of Mariga’s endorsement, I was at State House. I know how they accessed using the back-door. I also know how they piled pressure for the photos that you saw online).” Shebesh declared.

"Boss yetu Uhuru ako na voice…Kuna mahali aliongea? Si Uhuru ako na voice, akitaka kitu si anasema?Kwa nini picha bila voice?(Our boss Uhuru has a voice…Dis he utter even a single word (endorsing Mariga)? Doesn’t he have a voice to say what he wants? Why were there only photos without his speech?)”Shebesh fired.

The Gender Chief Administrative Secretary urged to rally behind the handshake a whose fruits they would enjoy, adding that it is President Kenyatta who looked for Raila Odinga to pursue national unity.
