President Uhuru Kenyatta has today granted Nakuru county city status after approval by the national assembly. During his speech during the approval, he went on to make fun of politicians who have been making haste decisions ahead of the 2022 general elections. From the way he spoke, he directed those words to the deputy president William Ruto who has of late been moving around the country to publicise his presidential ambitions.
He likened the deputy president to a sprint athlete who runs so fast for a short time and gets tired quickly. On the other hand, he likened former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to an elder who moves slowly but does not get exhausted easily and eventually overtakes the one who sprinted because of fatigue.
These statements by the president comes at a time when the deputy president's allies have been spreading the word that Ruto is way far ahead compared to Orange Democratic Movement party leader. With the president's statements, there has been stirred reactions about the political grip if the two top presidential aspirants.
