This seems not only to face Deputy President William Ruto has but also his key allies. His allies who have branded themselves as “Tangatanga” have faced major hurdles through President Uhuru’s Jubilee Party fumigation which has seen many of them be axed in key parliamentary as well as senatorial positions.
