Ngunyi says that this can be seen in his inability to rally the Trans Nzoia County Assembly, which he says is the home county of the DP, to reject the BBI bill.
He now argues that this is proof that Ruto is merely a paper tiger who has no influence, and an exhausted man who can be likened to ashes from a dead fire.
He says that ward representatives from Mt Kenya will be fools to reject the BBI on the orders of a man whose own region has gone against him.
"Dear Kikuyus:William Ruto is a fake PAPER TIGER. His home COUNTY of Trans Nzoia (Eldoret) has VOTED for BBI. Then he wants Kikuyus to vote AGAINST BBI. Dear Kikuyus you are FOOLISH if you follow a dead SHADOW. Where there is FIRE, there is ASH. And Ruto is NOTHING but dead ASHES," Ngunyi, a controversial political commentator, says in a tweet.
Interestingly, Eldoret falls under Uasin Gishu county, which has not made a decision about the bill.
Ruto also suffered a blow after the West Pokot assembly endorsed the bill. West Pokot falls under the Rift Valley region which is seen as a Ruto stronghold.
The DP, though he says he is not opposed to the President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga-founded push, is still seen as the face of opposition to the bill.
His allies have been openly opposed to the same, and have been predicting the worst for it at the County Assembly level, before it gets to the referendum stage.
