…as plot to deny Deputy President Kikuyu vote 2022 thickens
Powerful forces surrounding President Uhuru Kenyatta have worked on an elaborate plot to deny Deputy President William Ruto the influential Kikuyu vote come 2022.
Fear is, if Ruto is elected the President he will likely sack them from current plum positions and replace them with faces allied to Kikuyu politicians in Tangatanga camp.
They have also sold an idea to Uhuru, Ruto will not take care of the Kenyatta family interests.
To finish Ruto Presidential ambition is to cut his network in Kikuyu land.
They are of opinion, if the deputy President who enjoys support in Kalenjin land combines with the Kikuyu vote bloc, he will land Presidency.
Sources say, recent appointment of Kikuyus in government favouring anti-Ruto forces is part of the scheme.
Further, the cancellation of Murang’a prayer rally is seen in the same context.
We have information State house was jittery that Ruto and his allies had planned a major prayer rally in Murang’a that was to be turned into a political event ‘’Murang’a declaration’’.
The ‘’Murang’a declaration’’ tag prompted Uhuru and his allies to force the cancelation of the event.
Ruto could have been declared and anointed Kikuyu community preferred Presidential candidate in 2022 at the event.
What annoyed Uhuru is that, Ruto was to visit the President’s home turf when Uhuru and Raila Odinga have been postponing Central Kenya visits to market the politics surrounding the handshake.
Until last hour prior to the abrupt cancellation of over 100 members of Parliament had positioned themselves for sh 20,000 slotted for each one of them that was to attend the event.
According to some organizers our undercover team talked to, about 15 churches involved had already been advanced sh. 5 million for early preparations.
Here is the list of MPs who had confirmed attendance: National Assembly Majority Leader Adan Duale, Women Representatives Catharine Waruguru(Laikipia), Ann Ngirici (Kirinyanga), Sabina Chege (Murang’a), Janet Nangambo (Trans Nzoia) and Senator Mithika Linturi (Meru).
Others are David Gikaria (Nakuru Town East), Silvanus Osoro (South Mugirango), Richard Tongi (Nyaribari Chache), Joash Nyamoko (North Mugirango), John Waluke (Sirisia), Mululu Ijendi (Malava) and Emanuel Wangwe (Navakholo).
