Former President Daniel Moi’s press secretary Lee Njiru has claimed that Deputy President Willam Ruto will be in politics for the next forty years.
Njiru, in an interview on Citizen Television on Wednesday night, said Kenyans ought to begin used to seeing Ruto as he is young and ready for a long political future.
“Ruto is now 55 years .. people of Kenya must learn to see his face because they will see it for a long time, in the next 40 years,” he said.
Njiru said the DP will be financed and given protection by the state after the end of his term and will have enough resources to continue politicking.
“When he leaves office, he will get two cars, 3000cc and 2000cc. He will get 80% of the salary of a sitting deputy president. He will get medical coverage and will have passports and access to VIP lounges in all international airports,” said Njiru.
Talking about the strained relationship between President Uhuru and the DP, Njiru cautioned Kenyans against being divided by the two politicians, saying all politicians are alike.
“There is no difference between Ruto, Uhuru, Raila, Kalonzo, and Mudavadi. All those people are political cousins, they can turn against you…They are one clan,” he said.
