In 2013 when Jubilee party was seeking for power from Kenyans President Uhuru Kenyatta and the deputy president Dr William Ruto had a very good relationship.
Deputy president Dr Ruto and Uhuru could even wear clothes that were similar in color and design.
The Handshake between the former prime minister Raila Odinga and the president seems to have greatly affected the relationship between the two leaders.
Ruto’s hustler narrative where he propagates for economic empowerment of Kenyans has not been well received by the leaders close to the president.
Recently, Ruto insisted that even though the president had given other people his job he will still respect him as the boss.
Division between Uhuru and Ruto was very evident today during a high profile meeting between Uhuru Kenyatta and other senior government officials, as Ruto missed the event.
State house spokesperson Kanze Dena announced that President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi met Officers in the Senior Ranks of the Executive to discuss Government priorities for the current Calendar year.
She said that the meeting brought together Cabinet Secretaries, Chief Administrative Secretaries and Principal Secretaries to, among other matters, deliberate on the status of ongoing National Government programmes covering Big 4 Agenda and Vision 2030 flagship projects.
The President outlined to the Officers his vision and priorities for this year, top among them the completion of ongoing Government projects and programmes across all sectors and regions of the country.
Further, the President instructed the Officials to ensure prudent utilization of public resources in service delivery saying Kenyans must always get the highest value return for their money.
The Head of State urged the Officers to embrace teamwork and unity of purpose so as to deliver the promise of a better and prosperous Kenya for all.
