Moi-era Minister Speaks Out, Tells Kenyans What Happened Between Ruto And Deep State

Deputy President William Ruto should not be mistaken to have embraced his grassroot mobilization strategy out of his love for Kenyans, the people of Kenya have been told.

The DP, a 2022 presidential aspirant, has been seen trying to go directly to the people for their vote, and though his 'Bottom Up' approach, saying that he intends to work directly with the ordinary Kenyan.

This, he has said, he is doing because of his realization that the ordinary Kenyan has been forgotten, bashing fellow aspirants who are using regional kingpins to also achieve the presidency.

But former minister Amukowa Anangwe says that this he is not doing out of will but because he has no other option, after falling out with the very same people he is now bashing others for working with.

Anangwe says that Ruto would have obviously wished to work with the system again as was the case in 2013 and 2017, but has been forced to look for an alternative after falling out with it.

“Having been a beneficiary of the system, which catapulted him to power in 2013 and 2017 under controversial circumstances, he had to reinvent himself as the new defender of the people’s interests,” he told The Sunday Standard.

This comes at a time when the said cabal now seems to have settled on Ruto's top opponent Raila Odinga. In response, the DP has been bashing the alleged members of the Deep State for interfering.

But Anangwe says that the former Premier is also just doing what he thinks is right for him, and has decided to work with the people he feels have been standing between him and the presidency.

"Because he believes he lost the poll unfairly owing to the so-called system, Raila has now resolved to embrace that very system or the senior authorities in government," he is further quoted by the paper.

Raila on Tuesday met a section of the Mt Kenya tycoons under the Mt Kenya Foundation group, who hi ed at having settled on him. The group is reported to have a big say on who occupies the presidency.
