Has Deputy President William Ruto dumped Kisii deputy governor Joash Maangi from his side?
During the lead-up to the last general election, Maangi was a key figure within Ruto’s camp before strategically denounced Ruto just to retain his seat as Governor Ongwae’s Deputy.
Immediately after the elections, he ran back to DP and led a delegation to visit DP William Ruto at his Sugoi home last week.
While the DG is considered a staunch Ruto ally, many from the region are wondering whether the DP is no longer interested in him.
Speculation has been rife that the DP covertly funded flamboyant businessman Don Bosco who returned from prison in Tanzania and is eyeing the Kisii gubernatorial seat also coveted by Maangi.
Could this be an indication of the changing political dynamics in the region.
In other news, concerns are arising that DP Ruto is being misled into launching development projects in his whirlwind tours across the country without due diligence.
Some former MPs who blame their loss on the DP’s political schemes are concerned that some of the projects Ruto is commissioning had already been launched during their tenure.
One such project is the tarmacking of a strategic road in Kitutu Masaba, Nyamira county. Some of the DP’s handlers are said to have been unhappy with a function last Saturday in which he commissioned a road whose construction was due after successful efforts by the constituency’s immediate former MP.
The DP’s strategists are considering thorough background checks on any project before his appearance to protect the DP’s image from ridicule.
