Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has said that were it not for Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru Kenyatta would not have been President.

Speaking on JKL, Murkomen stated that Ruto worked his socks off to deliver votes for Uhuru and his contribution cannot be ignored.

He further denied claims that Ruto has been campaigning saying the DP is doing the same things he was doing before became the DP.

“Without William Ruto, Uhuru Kenyatta would not have been President… It is the truth and nothing but the truth.

“The William Ruto President Uhuru Kenyatta chose is one who loves the people, one who goes to church every weekend, one who supports churches. One who opens government projects and inspects them,” he said.

Murkomen also dismissed talk that Ruto has been campaigning saying he has never organized a rally intended for that ever since he started working with the President.

This comes after a section of leaders on Wednesday accused the DP of undermining the President and putting his 2022 plans ahead of development.

Elsewhere, lawmakers in the pro-Ruto camp claimed that Raila Odinga had forced President Kenyatta to make changes that would give ODM members half of Cabinet positions and Raila the post of the chief minister.

They challenged Raila to “stop making piecemeal changes, including an impeachment against Ruto and instead provoke a contest that will pit him against the deputy president through a snap election.”

 “Tuko tayari kwa uchaguzi, tuko tayari serikali ivunjwe na twende kwa debe (We are ready for polls. We are ready for the government to be dissolved and go to the ballot). We are sure we have the support of about 80 per cent of Kenyans and we are ready to win instead of being subjected to these shenanigans,” said Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Kuria said President Kenyatta was the appointing authority hence he could name anybody he wanted to join his government.
