“I appointed President Uhuru as an envoy because I’m different. I believe that President Kenyatta brings value to the processes in Ethiopia and DRC. What was there between him and me was a competition.

“It wasn’t a competition between me and the person he supported. Being a democracy, we are mature enough to understand that we can compete but we don’t have to be enemies but compatriots,” Ruto revealed.

Ruto added that he would be the one to be blamed if his administration fails and therefore there was a need to bring on boards Uhuru Kenyatta’s leadership skills to his administration.

“When things fall apart, it will stop at my desk. I can only be effective in doing what the people of Kenya want if the region is not a problem.

“If somebody else can help me with the regional issues so that I can concentrate my energy, efforts and time in sorting out the issues Kenyans want me to do, I think that is the right decision,” Ruto added.
