New Twist as Ruto’s Man Ahmednasir Abdullahi Changes His Prediction on The Mt. Kenya Vote

Ahmednasir Abdullahi, a well-known City Lawyer, has made the astounding claim that Kikuyus will not vote for Deputy President William Ruto to the death, despite evidence to the contrary.

On Twitter, Ahmednassir, who is among those rallying support for Ruto, confessed that even after winning the Kiambaa mini-election last week, the DP would not be able to get the full Mt Kenya vote in 2022.

He denied ever saying that UDA's victory will result in a clean sweep of Mt Kenya in 2022, and challenged those who claimed he did to give evidence.

“Prof. just posted the tweet in which I predicted that a UDA victory in Kiambàa would translate into 100 percent Central Kenya votes for DP RUTO in 2022... Simply post it! In a tweet on Sunday, the Senior Counsel stated, "Simple!"

This was in response to an article by Kenyan/American law professor Makau Mutua, who stated that, contrary to Ahmednasir's belief, Ruto does not have the full Mt Kenya vote.

In the essay, he states that based on the razor-thin margin by which UDA's John Wanjiku defeated Uhuru's Jubilee Party nominee Kariri Njama, it is apparent that Ruto only received a silver medal and not a gold.

Ahmednassir, on the other hand, claimed he never made such a forecast, accusing Mutua of making remarks and writing articles based on what his bosses tell him and without a brain of his own.

Nonetheless, he is optimistic that Ruto would win the much-anticipated election, adding that ODM leader Raila Odinga will finish third following Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

“In a three-horse race between DP Ruto, Hon Raila, and Hon Musyoka, Musyoka will finish far ahead of Raila if Kamba intelligentsia like Prof Makau Mutua supports their son kwa hali na mali,” he said.
