City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has waded into the strained relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his embattled deputy William Ruto.
The High Court advocate nicknamed the Grand Mullah argued the head of state cannot win against the DP in a public court since he had “trashed” the Constitution he swore to protect.
In a fiery tweet on his official handle on Wednesday, October 14, Ahmednasir claimed Uhuru had declared Ruto redundant by allegedly kicking him out of office and not assigning him any duties like before.
The flamboyant lawyer was responding to a headline by The Star with the headline ‘Frantic new bid to end DP Ruto, Kenyatta feud’.
“No matter how it ends, the conflict between Uhuru and Ruto is a fight Uhuru can never win in the public court. (One) like he does habitually, Uhuru trashed the Constitution, evicted Ruto from office and declared him redundant. (Two) at personal level Uhuru comes out, a bully and conniving,” he wrote.
TUKO.co.ke earlier reported Uhuru and Ruto’s handshake was in the offing as religious leaders and influential businessmen moved to finalise talks.
Two catholic clerics involved in the ceasefire talks said they were making good progress and exuded confidence the two leaders would soon have a handshake just like the one witnessed on March 9, 2018, between Uhuru and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The negotiations began last week after the second National Day of Prayer where the president and his deputy met but their frosty relationship was palpable to the public.
During the event, the head of state asked for forgiveness from all and sundry he had offended while extending an olive branch to those he was at odds with.
Ruto later gave another strong indication yet that he was not in good working terms with his boss.
While quoting the Book of Amos 3:3 in the Bible which states: “Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” the second in command hinted he could only work with Uhuru if the duo agreed to do so.
