The gloves are practically off as the 2022 elections get closer to the finish line. Following some recent comments made by the Head of State, William Ruto, the deputy president, has once again attacked his boss, Uhuru Kenyatta.

The DP has told Uhuru to concentrate on his retirement in a barbed response to claimed threats from the President.

"Nataka nimuombe rais wetu wa Kenya. Tafadhali rais, you should not be the source of threats in Kenya. Wacha Kutisha wakenya. Kazi yako ni kuhakikisha wakenya wote wakae pamoja," he said.

"Wacha kutuambia tutakujua wewe ni Rais, sisi ndo tulikuchagua na tulikuchagua uwe rais wa kenya. Wacha kututisha, sisi si watu wa kutishwa."

The DP was speaking at a campaign rally in Kapsabet, Nandi County on Friday.

He went on to tell the President to pay attention to marketing his candidate Raila Odinga instead of daily attacking and, he said, threatening him.

"Namuambia rafiki yangu Uhuru Kenyatta, please, wakati ulikua unahitaji watu wa kusimama na wewe tulisimama na wewe to the last man. Huyo Kitendawili unatusukumia saa hizi ni jamaa amehangaisha Kenya na alikuhangaisha ata wewe," he said.

"Nataka nikuambie, wacha kuniletea maneno, wewe sukuma candidate yako bwana kitendawili. Unaniongelea nini? Mr President, stop talking about me, talk about your candidate...Wachana na William Ruto. I supported you when you needed a man to support you."

Mr. Ruto added,

"If you do not want to support me, leave me alone. With a lot of respect Mr President be a decent Human being, Kuwa muungwana, kuwa na shukurani, sisi ndo tulikusaidia, wacha kujifanya. Sasa wewe umeanza kunithreaten ati sijui utanifanya nini, bora usiue watoto wangu. Mimi na wewe tafadhali tuheshimane."
