National: Kenyans Express Mixed Reactions After Former CJ Mutunga Predicted Dp Ruto's 2022 Win

Kenyans on social media have come out to express mixed reactions after Kenya's former Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga or predicted deputy president Dr William Ruto's presidential win in 2022 general election.

This follows after Mutunga averred that Dr Ruto would inevitably emerge victorious in the polls and would beat his closest rival Raila Odinga.

The former CJ who was showing on Ebru TV Live noted that although he did not support the DP's bid, he was the most witty politician who knew how to navigate his way to victory and that would give him an upper-hand next year.

According to Mutunga, Dr Ruto had managed to use politics aimed at targeting the less fortunate and downtrodden class in the society who had been forgotten by the rich leaders.

However, his sentiments stirred diverse reactions from Kenyans who responded to the story published by The Standard Digital media company and shared on Facebook on Monday.

A number of them, who could be presumed as Dr Ruto's supporters because of their remarks, quipped that Mutunga's prediction was accurate. In their view, the DP's popularity and likeability accross the country was apparent and it could not be simply wished away. They told off critics of the sentiments and reminding them that it reflected the reality.

However, some jibed him for meddling in partisan politics. The netizens who were supporters of the defunct National Super Alliance coalition blame him for upholding 2013 presidential election petition. Others within the same group, took a swipe at him for advising his judges to go on strike after Uhuru failed to appoint those who had been nominated by Judicial Service Commission.

This comes as Dr Ruto prepares to make a stab at the country's top seat for the first time in 2022.
