Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has hinted that he might support Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential ambition.
Ledama Ole Kina is known to be a close ally of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga and a member of ODM party.
The Narok Senator has hinted his plan to working with Deputy President William Ruto in his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2022 elections.
This was revealed after Olekina posted a message on his social media page on Monday, May 3, 2021 supporting the DP Ruto’s proposed bottom-up economic model where the economy grows from the grassroots level.
“Grassroots is the way to go, we must change the narrative,” Ledama said.
This is after the second in command had ruled out the current political model of negotiating with ethnic and regional kingpins as he strategises for 2022 presidential election.
In his recent meeting, the deputy president revealed that he would launch a grassroots campaign that will focus on the economic empowerment of ordinary Kenyans.
According to the statement released at the end of his three-day retreat with Mount Kenya leaders and economic strategists on Sunday, April 2,2021, Ruto claimed that the current model had only captured the interests of politicians while ordinary Kenyans had been neglected.
Ruto further criticised the trickle-down economic model claiming that it had led to increased level of poverty among Kenyans.
He praised his proposed bottom-up economy as the best model that would solve the unemployment issues and eradicate poverty in the country.
This comes after the Narok Senator on August 20, 2020 had claimed that the Deputy President is always ahead of everyone.
“No matter what we do with the formula (counties third basis allocation procedure) this guy is always winning ….Koitalel Arap Samoei the true wizard lives forever,” Ledama said.
