Deputy President William Ruto`s presidency has received a major boost after the Former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Farah Maalim claimed that the second in command is going to have an easy lead and win in the looming 2022 general elections.
According to Maalim, he doesn’t like DP Ruto politically, adding that he will not vote for him either, but alleged that the second in command has all that it takes to be the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya after President Uhuru Kenyatta`s term comes to an end.
He showed his confidence that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Leader Raila Odinga will not stop DP Ruto`s popularity, hinting out that as early as 10 am in the morning, DP Ruto will have already taken the victory.
“If it’s going to be a race between Ruto and Raila, I don’t like Ruto and I will never vote for him but he will win at 10 am in the morning,” Maalim said.
The positive vibes by the Former Deputy Speaker comes at a time when DP Ruto`s popularity across the country has gone to yet another level regardless of his cold relationship with President Uhuru.
DP Ruto has maintained that his focus will be on reviving the Country`s economy through the bottom up approached which has been embraced by his supporters nationally, a bid that has send a message to his rivalry team.
On the other end, the NASA principals are yet to make a substantial move to make known their bids on whether to work with Raila once more or go separate ways after Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka was reported to have held a meeting with the Former Prime Minister, Raila.
