Details of secretariat established to prevent Ruto from succeeding Uhuru
Revelation made on the same day President Kenyatta met Daniel Moi, son Gideon
Sunday Nation reported that the secretariat has two offices in Nairobi’s Gigiri and Lavington and have enlisted the services of a prominent lawyer and a political campaign strategist to achieve its objectives.
The secretariat is reportedly financed by a wealthy relative of a high-ranking Jubilee Party official and is an umbrella body bringing together DP Ruto’s critics from both within and outside government.
DP Ruto’s close allies have acknowledged the existence of plans to scuttle his 2022 bid with Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei confirming the existence of a secretariat to achieve this.
Addressing the public at a public rally in Kericho yesterday, Cherargei stated that “We are aware of a secretariat working day and night to frustrate the DP. It is taking advantage of the handshake between President Uhuru and Raila Odinga to come up with all manner of things to put a spanner in the works”.
“It’s behind the anti-corruption fight, lifestyle audit proposal and the Mau evictions,” he added.
Speaking on the same day that President Uhuru Kenyatta met retired President Moi and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, DP Ruto’s allies blamed Raila Odinga for fueling the anti-Ruto campaigns.
The leaders maintained that Odinga is keen on using the Baringo Senator to split the Kalenjin vote and deny Ruto a win in 2022.
