Kenya Kwanza presidential running mate Rigathi Gachagua now says that the differences between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, are not ideological.
Speaking on Tuesday, Gachagua said that what came in between the two leaders was that someone was suffering from a superiority complex.
"The differences between William Ruto and Uhuru Kenyatta are not ideological because some people suffer from a superiority complex," he said during the deputy presidential debate.
He added that Uhuru should have at least accommodated the DP in his second term because for the smooth running of the government.
"People must allow strong leaders to prevail... You accommodate and use that as a strength had Uhuru allowed William Ruto to help him rule on the second term Kenyans would not be here... all stalled projects would be going on."
The President and his deputy's differences have always played out in public since the head of state went for the handshake with opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The two have been throwing jabs at one another at public events despite having formed government together.
Gachagua also claimed that President Uhuru wanted Deputy President William Ruto to resign so that he could appoint Kanu chairman and Baringo senator Gideon Moi as DP.
Gachagua said that the plan was to intimidate Ruto, provoke him, and prosecute him and his friends.
"Ruto is not an appointee of Uhuru, he is elected by the people of Kenya, if it was the previous constitution, Ruto would have been sucked a long time ago and replaced with Gideon Moi," he said.
