Deputy President William Ruto and his camp have not remained silent after recent talk of letting other communities outside the Kikuyu and Kalenjin to get the country’s top job.

Ruto and his allies have opposed the idea of letting other communities to lead the nation saying the move is aimed at preventing Ruto from achieving his ambition of being president.

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo has however said that some allies from the Tangatanga wing had supported the idea of letting other tribes to lead the country.

Odhiambo said former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru and former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama who are now behind DP Ruto had in the past supported the idea.

“The first person I heard the message of giving other tribes a chance at the presidency was from Bishop Margaret Wanjiru when we were in reloaded ODM when she said 50 years was enough for other tribes to be out of leadership and we should include others. Muthama had similar remarks,” said the MP.

Odhiambo who is an ODM member defended President Uhuru Kenyatta who recently signaled that maybe it was time for other communities to lead the nation saying that only two communities since independence have been in top leadership position.

The lawmaker who was speaking during an interview with a local TV station said President Uhuru in his message wanted other tribes to be included at the top position and not exclude the two tribes.

“Many people feel uncomfortable about the conversation but we should not feel uncomfortable. President Uhuru did not speak exclusion, he did not talk about excluding the Kikuyu and Kalenjins, he talked about including other tribes. The best way to include them is to acknowledge that other tribes have not had a chance at the presidency,” added Odhiambo.
