Details about Explosive War between Ruto and Matiangi over Multi billion deals

The relationship between Ruto and Matiangi has soured over the past few months.
According to the star Matiangi and Ruto are engaged in explosive war.
A vicious fight between Deputy President William Ruto and Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i yesterday exploded into the open.
The two have been engaged in serious fighting, which has been kept out of the public eye for months, and those aware of it yesterday told the Star that the battle is spiralling out of control.
According to multiple sources, the fights have involved multi-billion-shilling tenders being pushed by Ruto and his associates, which Matiang'i has refused to approve.
The DP's spokesman, David Mugonyi, when contacted yesterday evening for a response about the tender row, responded furiously,"That's nonsense."
Matiang'i is known to be very close to President Uhuru Kenyatta and has his own presidential ambitions.
The latest incident occurred this week when the DP is reported to have asked the Interior CS to award a tender for the supply of police uniforms to other people, not just the National Youth Service.
Matiang'i stood his ground, insisting yesterday that all uniforms will be made by the NYS, as directed by President Kenyatta.
Without naming names, an angry Matiang'i told off a "politician" who wanted a share in the supply of the multi-million tender to supply fabric for the new blue police uniforms. He was speaking at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development after a meeting with MPs and the boda boda task force.
"The Inspector General of Police, the PS and myself have been under pressure by some quarters, and all manner of thieves, that we should import police uniforms.
"Listen to me very carefully. We will not import police uniforms, go and write another 10 headlines. We will not import police uniforms from any country. We have to promote the local textile industry," Matiang'i said.
The Standard yesterday reported that police have not been able to get their new uniforms because the fabric is unavailable.
But Matiang'i dismissed the claims, insisting that the government has already paid NYS Rivatex and companies in the Export Processing zones to make the uniforms.
"We will not import police uniforms. No amount of pressure, manipulation or anything will change that position. That style of life has come to an end in Kenya. It has come to an end and no one is going to live that way.
“Sasa wewe na wakora wako mahali mlikubaliana mtanunua uniform mtaenda muwaambie na muwaeleze kwamba hatutanunua uniform kutoka kwingine," Matiang'i said. This loosely translates to "You and your crooks, wherever you agreed that you will import police uniforms, go back and tell them that we are not importing."
Ruto and Matiang'i were also engaged in a cold war when the President visited Kisumu last week.
Intelligence sources told the Star yesterday that a governor from Nyanza, known to work with Ruto, ferried people from different parts of Nyanza to one of the venues where President Kenyatta was to address residents.
"Their brief was to heckle Matiang'i because of the boda boda crackdown but Matiang'i avoided the rally and only showed up at the Kisumu State Lodge in the evening.
On Monday Ruto, while speaking in Kakamega, opposed the boda boda crackdown, saying operators are businessmen and should be treated as such.
"There are many boda boda people in Kenya. They too are business people and I have told those concerned not to harass boda boda people," Ruto said.
Ruto and Matiang'i also clashed in February this year after over a multi-billion-shilling tender to supply arms.
