Veteran political analyst professor Mutahi Ngunyi has delved into the current political alliance between Deputy President William Ruto and renowned economist David Ndii with scathing remarks.
The two recently held a three, day retreat meeting at the Maasai Mara lodges to deliberate on the economic plans for the Nation ahead of the 2022 general elections, with the economist making a presentation on the same later.
Netizens however took on the economist with hard tackles on his decision to support the second in command after his earlier attacks branding him a ‘conman’ on numerous occasions.
Professor Ngunyi was not left out calling Ndii an intellectual prostitute while adding that he had a history of working with losers; suggesting that DP Ruto may end up on the losing side if he works with Ndii.
“It is not a tragedy that a Kikuyu psycho like David Ndii has now become an intellectual prostitute. The tragedy is this: he has always advised the team that loses. Asking a liberal economist to write a Marxist strategy is like asking a dentist to do heart surgery. Total guesswork,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, David was on the record with a local media station detailing his consideration for decamping to the DP’s campaign team ahead of 2022 polls. He noted that they had a shared interest with Dr. Ruto.
“We have common grounds and the first is we have to defend our Constitution. The second common ground is that we must have a free and fair election come 2022.
“We have a very serious problem in this country and indeed it is a fundamental political problem, and that is an electoral failure. And on those things, it does not matter what someone’s history is,” the economist stated.
Asked about the past instances when he had gone against the DP criticizing him, Ndii said that.
“I explained very clearly that this is my idea of a roadmap which constitutes my engagements with, not just someone like Ruto. What I saw is a re-alignment. The first order of business and we all have to agree on this, is to defend the Constitution and our democracy,” he added.
