Why Uhuru has not declared support for DP Ruto in 2022 yet – Mutahi Ngunyi
Is Uhuru's support for DP Ruto intact?
Despite speculations by political pundits that the handshake between Mr Kenyatta and Opposition chief Raila Odinga assured the latter of support during the next poll, the Head of State has not outwardly endorsed any politician to be his successor.
Controversial political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has now theorized why President Kenyatta has not sanctioned Mr Ruto for the top seat.
Big 4 Agenda
In his analysis titled: Ruto will not BECOME President. He will be MADE president, Mr Ngunyi divulged that the President was currently committed to the big 4 agenda, which he foresees will create his legacy.
"Uhuru Kenyatta has not told us that he will not support William Ruto in 2022 and he has not even suggested that he will support anyone else.
"And to imagine Uhuru has withdrawn his support from Ruto it is a little bit unfair, it is a show of insecurity. In my view what Uhuru is asking William Ruto to give him is space so that he can do his legacy projects," he said.
The political scientist opined that Mr Kenyatta was not in a position to engage in politics and focus on his Big 4 agenda at the same time.
"What Uhuru is asking Ruto without asking him is to give him a break in politics and if Raila has given Uhuru a break, Ruto surely can do it," he said.
Last week, Ngunyi his group of lawyers at Fort Hall School of Government revealed how Mr Odinga was winning against DP Ruto.
