Why Ruto? The Drive Behind Havi's Defection Into Ruto's Camp

This evening, the deputy president William Ruto received a major boost after a renown constitutional lawyer Nelson Havi, who is also the president of the Law Society of Kenya, decamped to his party. This is after the two leaders made it official that Havi will battle for Wetlands constituency as a member of parliament.

The two leaders have for a long time been linked to be working together after both investing their times fighting for the fall of the building bridges initiative which was being spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. The lawyer has also been avoiding colliding with the deputy president when others did raising suspicions of working together.

The lawyer, who previously joined Amani National Congress party, which is being led by Musalia Mudavadi, has been alleged to have been working with Ruto behind closed doors. Making it official today has been a major boost to the deputy president whose road to state house is now smoother.
