MP Ngunjiri’s Subtle Message to DP Ruto about 2022 following Uhuru-Raila Handshake

The surprise deal between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition Chief Raila Odinga has triggered a political earthquake that is promising to radically alter the 2022 succession formula.

The deal, which is still being drawn up by Uhuru and Raila’s trusted lieutenants, has thrown Deputy President William Ruto and the other three NASA co-principals back to the drawing board.

The disquiet in Ruto’s camp has been palpable, despite the brave face the DP has been displaying, with his allies now asking Raila to back their man for the top job in 2022.

For the first time, Mount Kenya politicians, who have been viciously attacking Raila, have made a sharp U-turn and now admit the deal is a political game changer.

Unfortunately for Ruto, the deal came when a section of Mount Kenya politicians have been sending mixed signals on whether the region will support him in 2022 or not.

According to Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu,who has openly shunned DP Ruto’s succession plan, the Raila-Uhuru truce has redrawn the political landscape.

In a thinly veiled reference to the Deputy President,Ngunjiri opined that however plans to vie for the 2022 presidency will now have the trouble of dealing with Mr Odinga first.

“Raila has not only proved he is a statesman but also placed himself very strategically to play a key role in 2022. All those with presidential ambitions will have no choice but to deal with him,” Ngunjiri said as quoted by The Star Newspaper.

The outspoken Nyeri Town MP was once criticized for questioning Jubilee’s succession plan in which the DP was to automatically be handed the Presidency ticket in 2022 ,according to a supposed Memorandum of Understanding the affiliate parties made during the grand merger.
