(KDRTV)-The Deputy President William Ruto has confirmed that he will not quit the Jubilee government after confessing that he has been exposed to humiliations from President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
Ruto was speaking during a secret meeting in Lumo Wildlife Conservancy, Mwatate constituency in Taita Taveta county.
He confessed that indeed he was facing humiliations from president Uhuru Kenyatta and blamed his woes on Raila Odinga
KDRTV was able to get a hint from the meeting where journalists were barred from attending and the attendants were also restricted from carrying their phones on Friday`s meeting.
“I will not quit the government despite the humiliation. I wonder why Raila and the president are taking issue with my quest for the top seat yet I supported them through thick and thin in past years,” said Ruto.

William Ruto told the attendants that he was very generous to support Raila as former prime minister
s son and also backed up Uhuru as fromer presidents son
However, the Tanga tanga politician was shocked why the duo has all over sudden turned against his pursuit for the presidency
“I once supported Raila, as he was the son of a former prime minister. I supported Uhuru, as he was the son of a former president. But they are taking issue in supporting a son of a hustler,” he quipped.
All the same, the DP did not hesitate to cast a pie on former Premier saying he was wondering why the God-fearing people of Taita Taveta had to vote for “mganga” in the coming elections
It is in records the second in command has not publicly pointed fingers at the president despite the several efforts made by his close allies such as Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
The DP also vowed that no one would stop him from campaigning
“I will continue with campaigns. kama watu huambiwa wajipange kwenda mbinguni na hatujui siku, kwa mini nisijipange kwenda ikulu na ninajua tarehe ya uchaguzi? (if people are told to plan to go to heaven and we don’t know the date, why should I not plan for an election whose date is known?” posed Ruto.
The secret meeting was attended by Tiata Taveta political leaders including MP Naomi Shaban, Tatita Taveta Woman Rep Haika Mizigni and other MCAs affiliated to the DP
