According to Jubilee Party Deputy Secretary General Caleb Kositany, the DP resolved to use his own logistics over frequent frustrations by the government.

“They have shown him that he is unwanted and he has decided to engage wananchi from his pocket if need be. He was not born to wealth or state largesse and therefore financing his travels is not a big deal. He will walk to meet the people if need be,” Kositany told journalists.

DP Ruto’s spokesperson Emmanuel Talam said that the second in command chose not to air his frustrations as he is currently focused on supporting President Uhuru Kenyatta end his tenure.

“He is not the complaining type. He wants the president to build his legacy and is committed to helping him achieve that,” Talam said.

In January this year, DP Ruto was kicked out of his official Mombasa residence forcing him to spend the night at English Point Marina.

Reports indicated that government employees at the residence had received instructions to remove DP Ruto’s personal effects from the house.

“His clothes and other belongings had already been put in various rooms. It is essentially a home, and therefore his personal effects were in place that morning.

“Around 4 PM, a call came from a senior government official to government employees there that all DP’s personal effects should be removed. It was a shocker,” a source was quoted by Sunday Nation.
