According to Muthama, Uhuru has guaranteed the Mt Kenya area that he will support his Deputy, William Ruto, in the 2022 Presidential elections, which is why it is difficult for him to go back and modify the contract to sell Raila.
"It was an act of conmanship and sheer craftiness for H.E Uhuru Kenyatta to choose William Ruto as his running mate in 2013 & 2017 with promise of ‘kumi yangu & kumi ya ruto’.”
“Such promises can’t easily be erased from the minds of informed Kenyans more so those in Central Kenya,” Muthama said.
Because of this agreement, Muthama believes it will be difficult for Uhuru to even introduce Raila Odinga to his people as his favored successor.
"No wonder it has become so hard for Uhuru to introduce Raila Odinga to the mountain since he knows what he promised William Ruto can’t be changed overnight in that region. Amazing!” Muthama added in a tweet.
This is despite the fact that President Uhuru Kenyatta had claimed that he had made no promises to Ruto.
