There has been discomfort in a section of Jubilee Party leadership, precisely Dr. William Samoei Ruto's allies. This started when the then opposition chief Raila Odinga shook hands with President Uhuru Kenyatta- the handshake- and set out to unite/reconcile Kenyans through the Building Bridges Initiative.
Kenyans and Deputy President's allies now believe that Handshake was Mr. Odinga's card to rock Jubilee Party and to scuttle his strong rival William Ruto's 2022 Presidential bid. The newfound Political friendship between Mr. Odinga and Mr. Kenyatta made Dr. Ruto look like an outsider in a government where he is deputy leader!
Frustrating events and narratives by "pro-BBI" politicians and some state officers against the Deputy President support the aforementioned. They range from corruption, "anti-BBI" allegations, premature campaigns to the recent 39 billion fake firearms tender scam that led to the death of a security officer at Office of the Deputy President.
