Mt Kenya Tycoons Told What Would've Happened Had They Invited Ruto to Their Meetings

Deputy President William Ruto's camp has once again expressed it's dislike for what has been ongoing regarding the 2022 presidential race, especially the involvement of the Mt Kenya Foundation.

The foundation has said that it will be seeking to influence the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, and has since finished vetting some of the aspirants, reportedly with the blessings of Uhuru.

But Ruto's UDA Chairman Johnson Muthama has rubbished it's efforts and luncheons in Nairobi, saying that a small group of people cannot purport to be trying to decide on behalf of millions of Kenyans.

In a tweet, he says that actions by the group, also known as Mt Kenya Tycoons, defy political logic, and has never been seen in the country, predicting that their preffered candidate will lose.

"It's mischievous and misleading to purport to interview some Candidates in Boardrooms to be President of over 40M Kenyans. The very nature of political logic defies these machinations. Who in private interviewed Kibaki and Uhuru? None," he says.

Interestingly, the foundation has avoided Ruto in its luncheons, amid reports that it's members are the same 'deep state' said to be out to see to it that the DP is kept off the presidency in the elections.

But Muthama has made it clear that Ruto is not interested and will not be party to engagements with the foundation even if he were to be included, suggesting that he would have snubbed them.

"William Ruto will not be party to these closed door political manouvers intended to hoodwink the public that "A suitable candidate is being sought" He will go before God and People," he further says.

Ruto has been public in bashing the businessmen, saying that theirs is a plan to protect their wealth and not to save Kenyans, hence their attempts to interfere and decide who takes over from Uhuru.

The foundation has so far held consultations with ODM leader Raila Odinga and the OKA coalition which consists Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula, Gideon Moi (Kanu), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Musalia Mudavadi of the ANC party.
