In yet another dramatic version on Saturday, President Uhuru Kenyatta snubbed DP William Ruto's attempt to introduce politics in the burial of musician John De Mathew.
Dr Ruto, who took to the podium after Governor Mwangi Iria, reintroduced politics after revisiting statements by former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo.
The former county boss had openly hit at Dr Ruto, accusing him of early campaigns, something which forced the country's second in command to join the debate.
Dr Ruto said that he had taken oath to help President Uhuru Kenyatta, adding that it would be imperative that he crisscrosses the country to push for development.
“He has now reported me to you that I am doing politics. I want to tell you that it is not true. People forget that I took an oath after you, to help you. I will be the first to be blamed if our agenda failed,” he said.
“When our victory was reversed by the courts, many people accused me, asking where I was when our victory was being stolen...” he said.
But when he rose to speak, Uhuru steered clear of the matter and instead dwelled on musicians welfare, vowing to crackdown on exploitation of artistes.
“We shall keep that vow because I personally have no friends other than the people of Kenya,” he said.
On the thorny issue of 2022 elections, he said he cared less about factoring it in his actions and moves.
“I am also not seeking re-election and don’t care who is caught in the mix,” he said in reference of those caught in anti-graft purge.
