Deputy President William Ruto has agreed to the planned ceasefire negotiations with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Ruto welcomed Catholic Bishops’ offer to negotiate a cease-fire and said that he is ready and willing to meet with the Head of State.
The DP spoke On Thursday, September 16th, 2021 when meeting a delegation of religious and grassroots leaders from Kandara at his Karen home in Nairobi.
“Hawa maaskofu wamesema wanataka kuniweka pamoja na rais, mimi niko tayari asubuhi na mapema, without conditions, sababu naheshimu Rais yeye ni mdosi wangu,” DP Ruto told the delegation.
The DP attributed the rift between him and the president to “outsiders” who “wanted to profit from a government they didn’t form.”
“Huwezi kudoea serial ambayo hukuunda,” the DP added, saying the March 2018 handshake between the ODM leader Raila Odinga and the president was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“Kuna watu tu wakora walikuja hapo wakasema huyu deputy president kwanza tuweke kando,” the DP said “Lakini mimi niko ready wakati wowote without conditions,”
