It has been established that there are influential political strategists who are working towards ensuring that the erstwhile political friends bury their hatchets and build the truce.
According to the Star, these influential forces around State House are trying to reconcile President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
According to a privy source, the plans to build the truce between the two is necessary after the ‘stop Ruto plans’ are likely to fail.
Close family friends and some prominent clerics are said to be working behind the cameras to ensure that the two work together again.
The truce between the two is considered important because it has been established that William Ruto stands a greater chance of succeeding Uhuru Kenyatta, that is according to several research reports and therefore these forces wants assurance that the next government will be stable.
This is coming few days after the second in command stated that he is ready to unconditionally reconcile with his boss.
“I’m ready. The clergy has said that it wants to unite me and the President. I’m ready without any condition,” Ruto said on Thursday while speaking at his Karen residence.
Ruto said he is ready unconditionally and at any moment.
“Without condition, any moment because we were both elected by Kenyans and they gave us mandate to run this government,” Ruto stated.
The second in command also warned the opposition that they can’t benefit from the government they didn’t install.
“You can’t benefit from a government you didn’t help create,” he warned.
The two were working before the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition doyen Raila Odinga took place. After the handshake that brought peace after the botched elections, the Deputy President has been humiliated by the powerful forces around the State House leading to the ouster of various his allies from various positions.
