President Uhuru Kenyatta has dared Deputy President William Ruto to leave the government if he is dissatisfied with it.
The President made the remarks in Uthiru, Kiambu County, where he commissioned a healthcare centre.
Without naming names but leaving no doubt about the target of his remarks, he said Ruto criticises the government with one side of his mouth and takes credit for state projects with the other.
“If you are praising it [government] stay in, if you are dissatisfied, get out,” Uhuru said.

The President told his deputy to pick a side as there is only one government that is either failing or succeeding.
The tough-talking Uhuru said he was unhappy with leaders who incited Kenyans to turn against each other, this being an indirect reference to the Hustler-Dynasty dichotomy that is seen as being articulated to pit the poor against the rich and therefore create something of a class struggle.
Uhuru called on leaders to work together to eradicate poverty among Kenyans.
