Isaac Ruto Reveals How American Govt Convinced Him To Dump Raila And Join Hands With Uhuruto in 2017

In recent months, Isaac Ruto has become a force to be reckoned with, with numerous leaders seeing him as a likely rival to DP Ruto's position as Rift Valley area head.


The CCM Party's leader was one of the NASA Principals in the 2017 Elections. He backed the ODM leader in the polls but instantly dumped him afterward.


Since then, he has been collaborating with President Kenyatta's administration in order to resurrect his political career ahead of the widely anticipated August elections.

After learning of the plot to swear in the Former Prime Minister, Rutto decided to break up with Raila's forces, according to Rutto. He was opposed to the plan since it would have divided the country in half.


It has now been revealed that the US government played a part in persuading him to leave NASA. Former US envoy Robert Godec, according to Rutto, was instrumental in persuading him to break ties with Raila and join forces with President Kenyatta.
