A statement by Deputy President William Ruto regarding his 2022 strategy could cost him big as there are signs he might lose some of his top political allies.
Manyora predicted that UDA could become a Kalenjin party, this comes as a section of leaders from Mt Kenya want the region to have their own party since almost every region has their own party.
“Gachagua and the rest could end up being orphans when UDA Party is squeezed into becoming a Kalenjin Party. I fear that could happen,” said Manyora.
The political analyst further said that DP Ruto might suffer a major setback as he has been faulted by a section of his allies for insinuating that he did not need coalitions ahead of next year’s election.
Manyora said Ruto requires Mt Kenya in order to increase his chances of emerging victorious in the presidential race.
“The 2022 elections will be decided on Mt Kenya. Who becomes the president will depend on what happens around Mt Kenya. William Ruto requires Mt Kenya to win the presidency. If he fails to get 30-40 percent of Mt Kenya votes he will fail,” said Manyora.
The Prof said DP Ruto should be worried following his coalition remark as both Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and TSP leader Mwangi Kiunjuri have maintained they will not leave their party.
“When you see Moses Kuria, Mwangi Kiunjuri talking about their parties, if you are from Ruto’s side then you should be worried. Ruto needs the entire mountain to be able to clinch the presidency,” added Manyora.
