"Ruto's Statehouse Dream May Still Fail" Prof Mutahi Ngunyi Warns

A controversial professor of political science and an erudite political commentator Mutahi Ngunyi has given hints that all is not over for president-elect William Ruto amid overwhelming belief among his supporters that they have already edged out their main competitor, Raila Odinga and that their is no turning back no matter what.

According to Mutahi Ngunyi who has since been critical of Ruto's leadership, the redress Raila has promised to pursue in court can throw everything upside down despite all signs showing that president Uhuru Kenyatta is willing to hand over power to Ruto.

Ngunyi further asserts that Uhuru's desire to hand over power is beyond being questioned since he has observed all constitutional guidelines among them overseeing a peaceful election, forming a transition committee and even the gazettement of President-elect.

It should be noted that earlier today, deputy President-elect, Rigathi Gachagua was quoted complaining of President Kenyatta's failure to congratulate William Ruto's victory arguing that such silence at such a period of transition is questionable.

"Uhuru Kenyatta has played by every rule in the book. There was no violence in this election. He gazzeted Ruto as President-Elect. He even appointed the transition committee to hand over power. But Ruto's ambition to become president may just stop at 'ELECT'. President-elect Ruto." He said.

Meanwhile, professor Mutahi Ngunyi has expressed optimism that the Supreme Court will ultimately rule in favour of Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
