Ruto Will Not Win 2022 Elections, Atwoli Insists

COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli is confident that Deputy President William Ruto will lose the presidential election next year.

Atwoli claims that since President Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga exchanged handshakes in 2018, a schism has developed within the executive, prompting Ruto to publicly criticize the current regime rather than support it, jeopardizing his chances of occupying State House once President Uhuru Kenyatta's term ends.

"If you are a deputy hoping to become president in the future, you must support the incumbent president until the end of his tenure.You will boost your prospects, and if you stay humble, you will easily get into office. He will also back your bid if you do so." Atwoli said On Citizen TV's JK Live show.

Given the depth of political experience that the ODM leader brings to the table, Atwoli believes that the fact that Ruto's strongest challenger on paper is Odinga makes it even more difficult for the Deputy President to win.
