The latest scathing attack on DP came from former Jubilee Vice chairman David Murathe who has vowed to stop Ruto from vying for the top seat saying that the second in command ought  to retire with President Uhuru.

Murathe whispered to be close ally of Uhru resigned from the post to ‘pursue other interests’ but sources now intimate that he was pushed out over his divisive remarks.

But what is now making round among the jubilee supporters in the Rift is how Uhuru was portraying  Raila on negative perspective during the campaign period to convince the voters otherwise.

An ardent follow on the social media for instance has caused uproar by posting that Uhuru does not owe the Kalenjin Nation anything or referred as Kurudisha Mkono.

Following the statement Uasin-Gishu Governor Mandago has also been dragged in the mix since he was in the forefront leading 50 school buses fully packed with Uhuruto supporters all the way from Eldoret to attend the swearing at Kasarani Stadium.
