You cannot analyze the country's present politics without William Ruto's name popping up and taking center of your narration, besides, the self-styled hustler is the frontrunner in a race to succeed his boss.
Before things fell apart between UhuRuto, the latter was purported to be a natural successor of Kenyatta II. His overly ambitious nature and show of impertinence (as said) ruined their 2013 pre-election pact.
To show his displeasure, Jomo's son detached himself from Ruto and he is presently leaning towards ODM mandarin Raila Odinga, his alleged successor. Uhuru hails from populous Mt Kenya, the region that will determine who occupies the house on the hill top and who doesn't.
While gracing a Mt Kenya delegates meeting at Sagana State lodge earlier this year, the outgoing head of state poked holes in Ruto's political methodology terming it dubious. Uhuru seemed disturbed with William's Backdoor-strategy.
Instead of using a front open door to make access to Mt Kenya, Ruto is allegedly using underway routes to make away with the region's revered treasure. Pro-Uhuru stalwarts have thrown their weight behind Jomo's son in reprimanding William to respect area leaders.
Speaking in Laikipia County over the weekend, the second in command told off Raila Odinga to desist from making 'unproductive' visits to Mt Kenya citing he is but the defacto area kingpin.
In a reciprocative reprimand, Agriculture CS Peter Munya has challenged the man from Sugoi to desist from disrespecting Mt Kenya people and leaders by making unverified declarations.
Munya further cautioned electorates from aligning with DP Ruto's style of politics asserting that Samoei never consults area leaders in his manoeuvres, should the residents heed Peter Munya's clarion call, then the man from Sugoi will pay for his political sins soon than later.
