Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata has claimed that Mount Kenya leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta are planning to decamp to Deputy President William Ruto’s side ahead of 2022 general elections.
While referring to his viral letter that he wrote to President Uhuru where he warned that he Head of State has no supporters in Parliament, the vocal Muranga Senator maintained that his statement will come to pass.
Kang’ata alleged that President Uhuru’s current supporters are just duping him, adding that they will all abandon him for Deputy President William Ruto before 2022 general elections.
The Muranga Senator further claimed that Mount Kenya region will never support Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga for his 2022 Presidential bid.
“In my letter in January, I warned the President that he has no supports in Parliament, those around him are just duping him. I also warned that a time will come when everyone around him will leave. Recently, we saw at least four MPs decamped to UDA and it will continue that way… They will all leave because no one can support Raila because we are William Ruto’s supporters,” Kangata said.
This comes after Kiambu Women Representative, Gathoni Wamuchomba who has been a strong supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta had decamped to DP Ruto’s camp.
