Ruto could gamble with 'No' vote to test ground for 2022

The battle lines in the push for constitutional reforms have been drawn,with Deputy President William Ruto setting the stage for 'NO' campaign that could be his trump card for 2022 presidential campaigns.

The Deputy President emerged as the senior most opponent to changes being pushed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Leader Raila Odinga,in effect directly challenging the duo on any attempts to change the Supreme Law.

However, this will put him in a direct clash with his boss,and some allies of the President are already terming his move as insubordination,and have demanded the Deputy President resignation immediately before or after the start of the campaigns.

But a defiant Ruto has laughed off the push to change the constitution arguing that the public have more pressing needs.

Siaya Senator James Orengo has insisted that Ruto is not honest in his rejection of the changes.As the Ruto confidants set stage for the NO campaign,Raila's allies have called for the process to be expedited so that a referendum can be held in good time.
