The sources also revealed that Deputy President (DP) William Ruto’s camp has been angered by the plans.

Ruto’s allies feel that “Senator Moi is out to benefit from the close ties that exist between the Mois and the Kenyattas yet he did not soil his hands hard enough to give the regime a second term in office.”

Mr. Ruto is reportedly unhappy with the arrangement even as Moi who has declared interest in 2022 presidential race takes the centre stage at state functions.

During President Kenyatta’s inauguration, the senator welcomed presidents Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), Salva Kiir (South Sudan) and former Tanzanian head of state Jakaya Kikwete.

This created  a stir with Ruto's allies reportedly protesting the move.
