Kakamega governor Wycliffe Ombetsa Oparanya has now revealed his cordial relationship with deputy president Dr William Ruto while hinting at a possibility of working with him ahead of 2022 general elections.
This follows after the vocal county chief claimed that he had been close to the country's second in comand, and would continue to work with him towards the future.
According to Oparanya, he has been consulting top politicians across the country, including Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga, president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Dr William Ruto over serious political and socioeconomic issues.
While speaking at a function in Kakamega county on Sunday, Oparanya noted that he was in talks with the three top leaders as the country prepares to go to yet, another general elections in 2022.
In a thinly veiled suggestion to the prospect of him being in one government with Dr Ruto in 2022, the second time governor argued that he would team up with the top three aforementioned leaders and decide on who to groom for top job, while others wait to be appointed to positions created in the constitution courtesy of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
".....Even William Ruto, we have also been working with him. When we get there, we shall decide on one of us to take over. If one takes over, others get appointive positions," he said.
He assured Kenyans that the implementation of BBI report recommendations was still on course, as he dismissed naysayers and critics of the report for alleging that the same was doomed to fail.
This happens amidst the move by 2022 presidential aspirants to canvass for formidable political partners who would enable them form alliances that could guarantee them victory.
