Manyora claimed when President Uhuru talks about his deputy, he wants Ruto to react and attack him so he can lose votes in Mt Kenya ahead of the elections.
According to Prof Manyora, the deputy president made a mistake fighting the handshake and attacking President Uhuru.
The political analyst said Uhuru launching scathing attacks on Ruto is so that the DP reacts and attacks the President who still controls a huge chunk of votes especially in his home turf Mt Kenya region.
“When William Ruto was trying to fight the handshake, he was getting it wrong. One of the thing Ruto was going to face was traps, there was going to be traps from the other side. When you see Uhuru talking, he is actually bringing you in the open so you can make blunders,” said Manyora.
“Ruto gets excited and he says the sort of things he is saying about Uhuru Kenyatta. But every time you say those things about Uhuru, you lose votes from Mt Kenya,” added Manyora.
