Mission Backfires? Tangatanga Mps Now Cautions Ruto Over His 2022 Ambitions

Deputy President William Ruto has endured yet another disappointment, as his Mt Kenya partners voiced concerns about their position in the anticipated general elections in 2022.

Murang' a county senator Irungu Kang' ata has broken his silence on how the region will conduct politics in 2022.

The legislators have admitted that, although the majority of them are DP' s supporters, their final decision will be based on what he has to give the area.

Before making a final decision, the lawmakers stated a plan to present their demands to other interested candidates, and they will consider who will better.

" Although the majority of us in the area support Ruto, our final decision will be based on what each candidate has to give. " We have already sent Ruto our demands and will continue to do so, " Kang' ata said.

Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici, on the other hand, claimed that the region was not ready for a presidential candidate and that the majority of politicians were unable to draw a crowd beyond their areas of representation.  

" We need a leader who can draw people from outside his constituency or county to rally behind him. " The country needs a diplomatic and fearless leader, but many of those running for president lack those qualities, " Mrs. Ngirici said.

The second- in- command has already expressed his desire to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, and he has also stated his intention to woo Kenyans to support his hustler' s agenda ahead of the election year.

Since the Mt Kenya region is unlikely to field its own candidate, Dr. Ruto has concentrated much of his attention on the vote- rich region, believing that if he receives maximum support, ascending to the presidency would be easier because he has a commanding power of over 4 million voters in his Rift Valley backyard.  

Raila is also endearing himself to the people in the region. He has on several occasions stated that the region owes him a political debt.
