With the rift between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his DP William Ruto coming out openly in public each day, Rift Valley MPs are coming to terms with what awaits DP William Ruto in 2022. The DP’s open defiance to his boss has made things worse for him and it seems he has accepted his fate, that Uhuru’s endorsement is not assured in 2022.
The ruling party is on the rocks, with its unity being threatened after two rival sides have decided to go at each other. The two rival camps have aligned themselves to both Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto. Top officials within the party who run affairs of the ruling party take direct orders from the president and have so far managed to keep off the DP from getting his hands on the party’s instruments of power.
Tiaty MP William Kamket says the signs are clear and Jubilee is headed for a big thud.He said the disintegration of Jubilee has been facilitated by politicians elected on the party’s ticket who have decided to go down with the party.
“Jubilee will fade the same way PNU, NARC and other political parties faded. There are many things happening in succession politics that I know and you (ordinary citizens) don’t know,” the Kanu lawmaker said.
He also said Uhuru Kenyatta will not endorse his Deputy in 2022 saying by the time Kenyans get to 2022, Jubilee party will be no more and new political formations , in which Uhuru may be a key player will have been formed.The MP was speaking in Moiben accompanied by Baringo Woman Representative Gladwell Cheruiyot and Uasin Gishu Senator Margaret Kamar.
On Rift Valley politics Kamkatet said no leader should think they can restrict the residents of Rift Valley to vote towards a single direction, saying the region will have two presidential candidates in 2022.
