DP Ruto to Suffer a Huge Blow After his Ally Says he Will Support This Powerful Leader if he Vies

Deputy President William Ruto is likely to miss out on support in the Gusii area if the Cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government programs CS Dr Fred Matiang’i runs for presidency in 2022.

Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi, who is a supporter of Dr Ruto, has said he would support Dr Matiang’i in his bid and not his ally deputy president William Ruto incase the latter runs for presidency.

Mr Maangi, who has been running the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party in the Gusii area, said this days after he and other Tangatanga politicians from Nyamira and Kisii counties met with Dr Ruto in Nairobi on Thursday.

"You know I aiming to be the governor of Kisii and if our 'child' Matiang'i runs for the presidency, of course the whole society will be behind him and will not listen to anyone who goes against it. I will be seen as a fool to oppose him and that will be my political end and I will be sent home early in the morning, ”said Mr Maangi.

This will be huge blow to the deputy president William Ruto who has been seeking to be the next Head of State by seeking the support of the vote rich Gusii community.
