Deputy President William Ruto Optimistic About Presidential Race in 2022
Deputy President Wiliam Ruto is said to be losing the system’s clink as he is seen falling from the crucial personality that is believed will make his presidential ambition come true in 2022.
While speaking with Kajiado leaders led by Katoo Ole Metito at his home in Karen, deputy president William Ruto broke the silence around his political career. While addressing the leaders, he assured his supporters that threats over the system are not the determinant of the presidential winner. Ruto claims that on his part, he is going to go with the people and God.
This comes barely a week after Raila Odinga’s brother Oburu Odinga and David Murathe said that Raila is fit for the country’s administrative position. In addition, Eala MP Oburu Odinga echoed that it’s time for the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to take the presidency from Uhuru Kenyatta.
“People are saying that there is a system that there are people who will steal votes. That, however much we vote, that there are people who will decide. I declare here that I am waiting to see those people. I am waiting to see the deep state, and I am waiting to see the system. I will come with Wananchi and God,” he said in his statement.
Despite the political setback from the Jubilee supporters, Ruto is still determinant to be on the ballot box and says that the system cannot kill his ambitions. The DP said that he was threatened in 2013 with people telling them that choices have consequences.
The DP statement was a response to Oburu Odinga, who implied that it wouldn’t be possible for Ruto to be the president without the system.
“Why not go to state house while he has been winning before? It is because there is something we have been missing. That thing is called the system. And now we have Uhuru Kenyatta, who is holding the system.” Said Oburu
With the 2022 electioneering period drawing near, the political seat of the presidency becomes the target for the political giant. Both Ruto’s and Raila’s supporters struggle to push over the succession of power from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
