Deputy President William Ruto on Friday said he will not stop his trips to Central Kenya.
DP Ruto who spoke at Tom Mboya Primary School in Nairobi said it is his work to supervise government projects across the country.
He said: “This is my work to ensure that all projects of the government are in place”.
On the same day, while speaking at a function in Kirinyaga County, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho warned Deputy President and legislators allied to the Tanga Tanga Movement to keep of Kirinyaga County.
In a direct attack to the camp, Kibicho said: “We want our visitors to uphold our culture when they tour our region,” Kibicho declared while accusing Ruto of stirring confusion”
He said he would not be shy in criticising Tangatanga because he has the backing of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“We as Government officials know where our powers come from. We are never going to be shy when we are talking about this”.
The tough-talking PS blamed Tangatanga for engaging in ethnic division in the central region.
Kibicho has been giving DP Ruto and his allies sleepless nights over the 2022 succession politics.
In July, Kibicho denied claims by politicians affiliated to DP Ruto that he was behind the plot to assassinate him.
“I hear assassination claims, who has complained? I think we should stop talking about things that don’t exist”.
He also accused DP Ruto for taking credit for projects initiated by President Uhuru in Central.
He said: “You can’t harvest where you did not sow”.
DP Ruto and Kibicho are reported to have had an alteration at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in May over their differences.
According to the Standard Newspaper, Uhuru demanded an explanation from the two over the incident which happened shortly before his flight touched down from a trip to Kigali, Rwanda.
