Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday, September 30 clapped back at his critics who accused him of absconding his duties after missing the much-publicized National COVID-19 conference on Monday, September 28.

Speaking at his Karen residence where he met a section of leaders, Ruto pointed out that those poking holes into his work were busybodies.

He revealed at no point has he failed to serve the country as the principal assistant to the President.

“No work has been given to me and I failed to execute,” he clarified.

Ruto cleared the air by highlighting that all his work and responsibilities given to him by the President have been discharged with distinction.

He also seized the moment to tell those purporting to supervise him to focus on their own duties of service delivery to Kenyans.

“Who are they to complain about my work? Who made them my supervisors?” he posed.

The besieged second-in-command reiterated that he knows his duty, and that Uhuru has “not complained about my performance”.

DP Ruto was a notable absentee during the National COVID-19 conference chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta at KICC on Monday.

Uhuru then addressed the nation for the 12th time since the COVID-19 outbreak in March, imposing a number of new measures that included the reopening of bars.

The nationwide dusk to dawn curfew was extended for a further 60 days but the start date was amended from 9pm to 11am and the end date remaining at 4am.

He also amended the number of people in gatherings upwards from 100 to 200.
