Murathe Says DP Ruto Will Change Constitution to Rule for 30 Years if Elected President

Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe has for the umpteenth time opened up on why he is uncomfortable with a William Ruto presidency.

While appearing on Kameme TV on Monday, April 4, Murathe said while he has no vendetta against DP Ruto, he said the deputy president will ruin the country should he ascend to presidency.

He described DP Ruto as a greedy leader who’ll also ensure the Mt Kenya residents and Kenya as a whole is impoverished.

“I have nothing personal against William Ruto and if he wins the presidency, then I shall congratulate him”

“What I hate about him are his actions. Ruto is like Moi ten times. And all Kenyans and Mt Kenya residents know how Moi destroyed our country economically”


“Now here comes Ruto who has more energy, more money and younger. If Ruto ascends to presidency, he will change the Constitution to reign for 30 years. You know his mentor is Yoweri Museveni,” he said.

Murathe slammed the DP’s corrupt practices and high-handedness saying the worst version of the second-in-command would be unleashed once he ascends to the highest political office in the land.

“I can’t imagine a Ruto presidency. See how he’s behaving as a second –in-command, think how he will behave as the president.”

Cutting Deals With Impunity

The Jubilee vice-chairman further claimed the DP was ruthlessly corrupt claiming he has in the past called procurement officers in government to award multi-billion tenders to his cronies for kickbacks.

“ He would call procurement officers and ask them to award tenders to certain people” he said.
“I want you to award that tender to such and such a person. Oh, you say it is worth 2 billion, now make it three billion.”
Said Murathe.

The Jubilee vice-chairman further claimed that DP Ruto lacks the temperament and composure of a would-be president.

“ He is always temperamental when he talks. He is not even able to hide his anger. And one is left wondering, what is annoying him (DP Ruto). I fear such people,” said Murathe.
