Gatundu North Member of Parliament Hon Wanjiku Kibe's latest statement that Deputy President Dr William Ruto is currently more popular on the ground, where most Kenyans are supporting him for presidency in upcoming 2022 general elections, but he will not win over the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga who is his main competitor.
According to the People Daily Newspaper as quoted by K24 television, Kibe said that the ground especially in Mount Kenya region is backing the Deputy President more for the top seat next year. But he will be defeated by the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga even if he is popular on the ground. Raila is the one who is going to be the next President of Kenya to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
To his statement has elicited many reactions from Kenyans, where most of them have ridiculed the legislator saying that she might be meaning that deep state will therefore steal the votes in favour of ODM leader Raila Odinga, if Ruto is truly the most popular on the ground since there's no way Odinga can win without votes. While a few of them backed the legislators statement saying that it's true Raila might end up turning tables and defeat Ruto next year.
