The deputy president William Ruto is known to be a very shrewd politician in the country. He managed to outwit the late president Moi and became the kingpin of the Rift valley region. The late Daniel Moi would have wanted someone else to succeed him as the kingpin.
Currently, he is trying to outwit president Uhuru Kenyatta in Mt Kenya politics. The Dp has ventured into the Mt Kenya politics and many hustlers in the region consider him as their leader. As we all know, the president does not enjoy the massive support of the tycoons in the larger Mt Kenya region. The tycoons are the ones that control the politics in that region.
He has also gone to the church directly in the larger Mt Kenya region and I can say that he controls currently controls the church in the larger Mt Kenya region. But is there chance that the Dp is very strategic in his moves to a certain end game?
In my considered opinion, the deputy president has a strategy to lock out the Kikuyu Nation from future presidency. This is because his choice of governors in 2022 are people who may not meet the aspirations of Kenyans if elected as president in 2027 and beyond.
On the Dp's governor list in 2022 is Bishop Wanjiru(Nairobi), Susan Kihika(Nakuru), Wanjiku Wamuhia (Nyandarua), Rehab (Nyeri), Sicily Mbarire (Embu), Kawira (Meru), Gathoni wamuchomba (Kiambu), Ngirici (Kirinyaga).
The point here is that of all the governors the Dp is pushing for in 2022, non of them has the potential of becoming the next president of the republic of Kenya. Therefore if he succeeds president Uhuru, then there might be no potential Kikuyu presidential candidate after him (Dp Ruto).
