Deputy President William Ruto lured former Prime Minister and ODM leader Raila Odinga to overthrow President Uhuru Kenyatta, Habarileo has learnt.
In an interview with the Nation, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed revealed the recent disagreement between Uhuru and Ruto was a result of 2017 deal DP had with Raila.
Jun²et said Ruto promised Raila and his ODM associates half of all senior government positions in return for helping the DP impeach Uhuru soon after 2017 general elections.
Junet, however, revealed that he got a call from a Nyanza minister who warned them against the move.
” A senior and powerful minister from Nyanza called me with a stern warning. He asked why we wanted to take the country down the hill, why we wanted to destroy the country. It got us thinking, because with the government already in the picture, we needed to be careful on our moves. That’s when Raila chose to tell Uhuru the full extent of the plan,” Junet said.
This saw Raila come together with Uhuru through handshake in March 2018 and bitter rivalry between Uhuru and Ruto has grown immensely since then.
