Deputy President William Ruto has asked journalists to keep off his relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
You never discuss your boss - DP Ruto explains why he missed Covid-19 conference and BBI signature collection launch
DP Ruto on the defensive
In an interview with Citizen TV’s Joe Ageyo on Thursday, a frustrated DP Ruto stated that those questioning the bond between him and his boss “don’t know what they are talking about”.
The journalist had sought to find out why the DP was absent during the National COVID-19 conference chaired by President Kenyatta as well as the BBI signature launch recently held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
“For your information Joe, there’s a reason I was not there and there’s a reason I was not at KICC and the reasons are valid. I am very careful when it comes to the attendance of my duties,” the DP stated.
The question seemed to anger the DP, forcing him to altogether dismiss the journalist accusing him of ill-motive.
”What you are trying to do is to discuss my relationship with my boss and I discourage you from going there.
”And for your information, the President has never told anyone -in public or in private- that William Ruto has absconded from duty. Neither have I complained that I have a problem with the President. Why would you?” Dr Ruto posed.
He added: “The relationship between me and President Uhuru Kenyatta should not be a subject of discussion anywhere, he is my boss and you never discuss your boss.”
