We have forgiven you, deputy President William Ruto has told his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta for the torture in the last four years.

The DP was alluding to the President’s support for Raila Odinga, the ejection from Parliamentary committees, high food prices, among others.

Addressing an energised crowd in Thika, the second-in-command who is seeking to succeed Uhuru in August, said his boss erred by attempting to impose Raila on the people.

The DP referred to the ODM leader as a stooge placed at the helm of power to do the President’s bidding once his tenure comes to an end.

Dr Ruto told the crowd that he and other leaders in the Kenya Kwanza alliance had stood with the president at his time of need.

He was referring to when he and the president were facing charges at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
