Deputy President William Ruto is hoping NASA leader Raila Odinga can help him clinch the top seat in 2022.
“We in the Jubilee government believe we can use the former PM’s political acumen to help the DP clinch the presidency in 2022,” Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said yesterday.
Murkormen made the remarks in Nyeri County as he spoke over the lunch President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga had at Ruto’s Karen home last Friday.
“Our politics revolve around development and I want to assure you that President Kenyatta’s influence and popularity in the region will help the Jubilee government garner more votes in 2022,” he said.
This comes after Uhuru declared that he would have a say in who takes over from him and vowed that his choice of successor would shock many.
