Post by : Sue Njihia

 Raphael Tuju,the Executive Director of the Azimio Presidential Secretariat,  claims that Deputy President William Ruto was actually paid support Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013.“Let the people of Mount Kenya not think that Ruto supported Uhuru willingly in the first place, this is a person of blackmail. He was paid. I can confirm before a court of law how it went,” Tuju said in a Wednesday interview with Inooro FM.

According to Raphael Tuju , Ruto presented ultimatums that needed to be met before pledging his support  for Mr. Kenyatta in 2013 among cash.

“He came with conditions that had to be met in order for him to back Uhuru. To him, politics is a business. That is why when he was making appointments in the cabinets and parastatals, he had to be given a 50% share which he then gave to his people and his friends.”
“Trying to blackmail Kikuyus that he supported them is false. He was paid and this is someone you cannot trust with the Treasury and the Central Bank,” Tuju added
