Franklin Bett Alleges Why "Deep State" Is Real And May Likely Vanquish DP Ruto Presidential Bid

With the 2022 general election less than a year presidential hopefuls are tossing up in what seems to be a tough battle to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta once his second and final term at the helm comes to an end.

Already political pundits are predicting a two-horse race pitting Deputy President William Ruto and former Prime Minister and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Hon Raila Odinga with either of two likely to land the top seat in the land.

And according to former powerful State House Comptroller Franklin Bett, the 'Deep State' analogy which is mainly used to refer to powerful persons behind the scenes involved in Government activities is real and may likely vanquish the Second in command presidential bid.

This comes amidst claims made by Nyandarua Governor Hon Francis Kimemia that indeed there is a deep state and they usually play a major role in general elections.

"If you have two candidates at the rate of 50-50, and the Deep State backs one, you can be sure that one will win. The candidate must be credible and electable, that becomes very important if the Deep State are to support a candidate,” Kimemia initially noted.
