Why Ruto may not become President in 2022 – MP Ichung’wa

Deputy President William Ruto risks failing to ascend to Presidency in 2022 , a vocal Member of Parliament has warned.

According to Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung’wa, the political tussle between Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and DP Ruto may scuttle the latter’s chances of clinching power because their rivalry may split the populous Kalenjin community vote.

Speaking on Saturday, the legislator observed that the deputy President was nearer to the throne than the son of retired President Daniel Arap Moi and asked the Baringo Senator to drop his bid and back his Kalenjin ‘brother’ in his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“The Rift Valley region cannot continue providing the stage for political theatrics while other regions are focusing on development.”He said

On the 2022 question, there are no two bulls in the Rift Valley, we only know one which is Ruto,” Ichung’wa added.

Ichung’wa claimed that the Mount Kenya region, under the leadership of President Uhuru, had agreed to unanimously support the DP tin the next general election.
