Things have gone astray for both ODM leader Raila Odinga and deputy president William Ruto after former jubilee vice chair David Murathe went open.According to Murathe, former Gatanga member of parliament Peter Kenneth will be endorsed as Jubilee’s flag bearer for the 2022 presidential elections.
The outspoken Mt Kenya leader has been predicting change of events and is alleged to be an unofficial spokesman of the president.”Uhuru haezi achia mwizi kiti,” he said during one of the BUilding Bridges Initiative meeting in the region and raised eyebrows on the relationship between the president and his deputy.
It was before this, that the president said he had no preferred candidate for 2022 and widened his differences with the dp.During the previous campaign, UhuRuto was one team and not once but severally Uhuru reminded his supporters that after completing his term, then they will back Ruto to also rule for ten years.
The Mount Kenya region has also witnessed division with some of it’s leaders speaking Ruto’s way while others behind the president.This spiked parliamentary committee roles being changed and most of Ruto’s ardent supporters lost with allegations of not walking as per the party’s constitution.
Former Agricultural CS Mwangi Kiunjuri was thought to be the man to lead the region after Uhuru’s retirement, but his action prompted his sacking.Despite forming his own political party being the only in the region, the president’s pick will have influence in the region.Many netizens were urging the president to endorse Kenneth and Murathe’s claim comes at the right moment.
Raila who it was initially thought that through the BBI will be supported., has to go his own way especially after recently his members disagreeing with Jubilee in Parliament over committee roles.
