Plans to have President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga make a joint visit in Central Kenya have been repeatedly put on hold after it emerged that a group of Tangatanga politicians were out to embarrass the two during the tour.
Security reports indicated that the Ruto allied politicians were hell bent on creating trouble during the visit in a well calculated move to portray that the handshake deal was not welcomed at the President’s backyard.
Quick recommendations were made on how to neutralize deputy president William Ruto’s allies in Central and top on the list was to have their security details axed.
The move is already causing jittery between President Kenyatta and his deputy Ruto who have been openly in a strained relationship.
Pundits indicated that the move to withdraw security details was just a highlight of impending havoc the President is likely to crack on those perceived to be frustrating his legacy agendas.
The first casualties are Kiambu governor Ferdinard Waititu, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunnjiri.
Presidential order to have their security withdrawn also comes days after it was reported that the head of state was rapidly losing his backyard support to the deputy president Ruto.
It has been established that the Presidential order has sent other Tangatanga members into panic mode.
