James Gakuya: Ruto Was Only Used to Make a Ladder For Uhuru Kenyatta's Second Term in Office

James Gakuya, a member of parliament from Embakasi North, asserts that Uhuru just utilized Ruto to win reelection. He claimed that those close to the former president may have already made the decision that Ruto would not be permitted to succeed him.

The pair never managed to endure a year after the elections, so this might be accurate. Additionally, Ruto's hasty exit showed that he was well aware of the game being played. He made the decision to go it alone and left Raila Odinga and Uhuru with a handshake.

He put up a squad that was difficult for Uhuru to manage in parliament. He turned to the populace, giving Kenyatta the reins of administration and lessening his influence over the electorate. People on the ground supported Ruto because they felt sorry for him because of his predicament. He continued to knock on their homes and travel the nation promoting his message before being welcomed and becoming president of Kenya.
