Good News For Ruto Supporters as Duale Says What'll Happen to Deep State in 8 Months

The Deep State has been warned of tough days and trouble ahead should it proceed and try to influence the outcome of next year's presidential elections.

This comes amid claims from Deputy President William Ruto's camp that the same is exactly the case and the team has began preparing to interfere.

According to members of this camp, led by Ruto himself, the plan is to block his own presidency and hand power to ODM leader Raila Odinga.

But Garissa Town MP Aden Duale has predicted a loss for the cabal, saying that they will crush it in the elections before marching to State House after the elections set to be held in 8 months.

He spoke while accompanying Ruto to Kakamega on Friday, where he also laughed at President Uhuru Kenyatta for thinking he can successfully interfere.

He reminded Raila that the Head of State only has one vote and shouldn't think that he can make the big decision on behalf of millions of vote holders.

"Raila is a government project and even his handshake partner, Uhuru, has one vote. We shall dismantle the so-called deep State and ascend to power,” said the former National Assembly Majority Leader, who was once very close to the President.

His remarks come at a time when Raila is seen as the closest man to Uhuru, which analysts say can make it easier for him to succeed the outgoing President.

Uhuru has twice confirmed that he has settled on the former Premier, in Kibra and at Thiba Dam, where he admitted that he is the man behind Raila's Mt Kenya tours.

"I sent a visitor here and I hope you welcomed him well," he said at Thiba recently, making it clear that he will not be keeping his promise to endorse Ruto.

But Duale says that things will not end well for Raila if he continues depending on Uhuru, telling him that he will be the biggest loser at the end of it.
