William Ruto has many friends but COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli is not among them. As the second in command readies his army for 2022 duel, the vocal trade unionist has made it a hobby reminding him that his name won't be on the ballot save becoming Kenyan president.
Is Atwoli the type of kusema na kutotenda? The answer is No, Francis is undoubtedly a member of Anti-Ruto crusaders who are hatching a political plan whose application will see William's shot hitting a dead end.
And how is the trade unionist effecting this? In the recent years, Atwoli has been meeting with key political figures from Mt Kenya region in what has been dubbed; a power brokering deal.
Atwoli is a close ally of ODM chief Raila Odinga and the veteran is among those hyped to unseat Uhuru Kenyatta. The trade unionist is verily streamlining a deal between Atwoli and Mt Kenya region bigwigs.
With Mt Kenya's support, Raila's leap to statehouse is set to gain momentum and to Ruto, this will be a greatest stumbling block.
