Ruto Not The Good Man Kenyans Think as Speaker Muturi Alleges Who he Really is Inside

Kenyans should be very careful with Deputy President William Ruto and his presidential ambition, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has cautioned.

Muturi says that the country, especially the Mt Kenya region, needs to be very cautious with the DP, even as he camps in the region convincing it to vote for him.

He adds that despite the soft image he is trying to give and the sweet words he is using to attract voters, Ruto is a totally different person on the inside.

Muturi, while speaking in Meru on Monday, said that having been close to the DP, he can tell Kenyans that he is not at all interested in the country's well being.

He claims that immediately after getting his way and capturing the presidency Ruto will lock Mt Kenya out of his government as his promises are just a trap.

"Today he (Ruto) approaches you, enticing you with jokes, but when he wins the elections, you know what will happen. You will be locked outside," the former Siakago MP is quoted by the People Daily.

He likened Ruto to a wolf in a sheep's clothing, who will turn against Kenyans once in power, adding that even his UDA party is not to be trusted.

"I now hear that you have come up with a national party. I haven't mentioned any specific politician from this region, but I am aware that there is no angel in that party," he said, adding that electing Ruto will be a big mistake that needs to be avoided.

He too has declared interest in the presidency and was initially seen as one of the persons who were possibly keen on being Ruto's running mate.

But his warnings come at a time when more leaders are joining Ruto and his Hustler Nation, with Nyeri governor Mutahi Kahiga being the latest entrant.

Recent surveys and opinion polls have also been indicating that he is the one Kenyans would elect to the presidency were elections to be held today.
