Controversial political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi famous for his tyranny of numbers theory has appeared to downplay the reports that Deputy President William Ruto is currently a kingpin in the Mount Kenya region.
The second in command is one of the favorites to win the presidential seat come 2022 and is keen to bag the Mount Kenya following to stand a higher chance in the race to the state house and with political leaders from the region backing his bid, he stands a massive chance in the race.
Ngunyi has however dashed the hype about Ruto in President Uhuru's backyard in an interview with a local daily in which the analyst claimed that the commander in chief will be the kingmaker for the general elections.
He further warned leaders from the region that they should associate themselves with the president if they are to remain relevant or back Ruto and see their political careers diminish.
"The key issue is that nobody would imagine being president in 2022 without Uhuru’s agenda. What they need to do is to align themselves with the President’s agenda,” Ngunyi said.
Mutahi also stated that even though there are claims the central vote is being commanded by Ruto at present,President Uhuru will soon be having the last laugh as he will sway the numbers back to his favor.
