Anxiety over Joho's warning to DP Ruto once he assumes office
During a NASA rally in Nairobi, Joho sent a stern warning to Ruto, saying....
During a NASA rally in Nairobi's Eastleigh area on Sunday, Joho reiterated his desire to be President in 2022, a move that will put him in a direct collision course with Deputy President William Ruto who himself has publicly stated he will be on the presidential ballot in the same year.
A confident Joho told an estatic crowd that he will be Kenya's President 'very soon' and that once he assumes the highest office in the land, Ruto should brace himself for tough political times.
The Governor declared that a Joho Presidency will mark the beginning of Ruto's downfall and insisted he was the best man to take over from NASA leader Raila Odinga in 2022.
However in the meantime, Joho urged Kenyans to overwhelmingly vote in Odinga in the repeat presidential elections scheduled to take place in October 17.
Joho also declared that he will be a force to reckon with in Odinga's Government once they sweep power.
“Nakwambia kwa hii serikali ya Raila nitatambaa mimi.(I am telling you, I will dominate Raila’s government,” said Joho.
The governor and the DP have in the recent past been embroiled in a war of words over the 2022 presidential contest.
In the run-up to the August 8 elections, Joho lashed out at the DP saying he had no moral authority to address the corruption menace in Kenya.
Joho urged that Ruto should be compelled to declare the source of his wealth especially the money he used to purchase helicopters.
Ruto has also been on record saying that he would 'deal' with the 'uneducated' Joho over his attacks on the government and Jubilee leaders who include Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya.
