Kenyans Told How Uhuru Might Soon be Forced to Use NIS to Block Ruto's Presidency

Deputy President William Ruto has almost already lost his bid to become the next President of Kenya, political analyst Martin Andati has said.

Ruto is a frontrunner in the contest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, but is now spending a good portion of his time bashing the Head of State after their fallout and subsequently enmity.

Andati warns that Ruto's attacks on Uhuru will make it even harder for him to get to State House, as he is picking a fight with a man who has everything needed to decide who ascends to the presidency next.

He warns that by attacking Uhuru, Ruto is making the President use all the agencies needed to prevent his presidency, including the intelligence agency, and the DP can now be sure he will not be President.

“Uhuru has the instruments of power and that goes with the security apparatus, intelligence, the money. Those are factors you cannot ignore in politics," the commentator told The Star on phone.

But he at the same time points out that Ruto's anger towards Uhuru is understandable, as the President has made it very hard for him to win by shifting his allegiance to Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga.

He argues that with Uhuru's support, Ruto was already guaranteed of the presidency, and Uhuru's decision not to support him is why he is very angry and furious at him.

“It is out of anger and frustrations. If Ruto ran against Raila with Uhuru support it would be a no contest. The move of Uhuru to support the other side really unsettles and disorganises Ruto’s plans,” he opines.

He states that with Uhuru now unlikely to drop his support for Raila, Kenyans should expect more anger from Ruto and more exchanges between the two.
