How Ruto plans to become president in case Uhuru withdraws support-Kutuny

The truce between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition chief Raila Odinga caught most political leaders in the nation unaware.

None had anticipated it, including Deputy President William Ruto and his close allies in the ruling Jubilee Party.

The newly found bromance between Kenyatta and Mr Odinga has sent Ruto’s camp back to the drawing board as they see the accommodation of the ODM leader as a stumbling block to their man’s chances of succeeding the President in 2022.

The former Premier has been meeting high profile veteran politicians in the country, raising more jitters that the dynasties (Kenyatta, Moi and Odinga families) could be plotting to sabotage the DP’s ambition to ascend to power.

Pronouncement by the President during Kenneth Matiba’s funeral that he was determined to work with Raila, despite resistance from close allies who thrive in commotion, has further kept DP’s handlers wondering; was he referring to Ruto? Could he be planning to dump Ruto for Raila?

Now,speaking to Sunday Standard, Cheregany MP Joshua Kuttuny, Ruto’s close ally, said they have been watching the ongoing political activities closely and they were planning for any eventuality.

“We have seen the recent happenings in the political circles and we do not want to be caught unaware. We have to work smart,” he was quoted by the local daily.

The outspoken legislator, who is the chairman of the young legislators’ caucus for Ruto, said if the dynasties would join hands to block Ruto’s presidency, they would mobilize ‘hustlers‘, whom he said are the majority in the country, to support one of their ‘own‘.

“Ruto is a commoner of humble beginnings. We hope that this message will resonate well with the majority in our hustler nation. He personifies an ordinary Kenyan man. His triumphs will represent that of other wananchi,” he said.

Mr Kuttuny was President Kenyatta’s adviser on political affairs when he failed to retain his seat in 2013 ,a job he did till 2017.
