Four members of parliament have made it clear that they will work with the deputy president William Ruto ahead of the 2022 general election. They are Joshua Kutuny, Charles Keter of Nandi as well Moiben Member of parliament Silas Tiren and William Chepkut.
It's clear Uhuru Kenyatta would have expected the members of parliament to continue supporting him hence a big blow given that's what Raila banking on to get into Rift Valley. However seemingly things have changed and the MP's seem to support William Ruto as opposed to the president or Raila Odinga.
The fact of the matter is that somebody like Joshua Kutuny has been a strong critic of the deputy president William Ruto and so is Alfred Keter and Silas Tiren. However their change is strategy is confirmation that the Rift Valley region could be under lock and key behind William Ruto.
Already the four leaders have toned attacks against William Ruto and completely changed tune to his advantage. However, It's a matter of wait and see of what would unfold as we move into the 2022 general election but clearly the move is a big blow to Uhuru and Raila Odinga, especially ahead of the 2022 general election given the succession plans.
