DP Ruto and Musalia Mudavadi clash in public as behind-the scenes intrigues surface ahead of 2022

DP Ruto and Mudavadi shared the same platform in Kakamega

The clash was ignited b DP Ruto who appealed to Mudavadi to support his 2022 bid, noting that he had supported Mudavadi and Raila Odinga in 2007 and it was time to pay back the political debt.

Ruto recounted how the ODM pentagon had agreed to share positions with Odinga as the President and Mudavadi as his deputy with Ruto as the Prime Minister.

“However, my two big brothers decided to share my post among themselves, leaving me without anything despite our earlier deal… I got nothing but was taken to Hague,”Ruto said.

When Mudavadi rose to speak, he was reading from a different script, tearing into the DP and refuting his claims, maintaining that such an arrangement never existed.

The ANC boss made it clear that he has no one’s debt and challenged DP Ruto to support him in 2022 to make up for betrayal meted on Mudavadi in 2013.

A tough talking Mudavadi divulged that “I don’t have Ruto’s debt and if anything, the debt should have cancelled out when he (Ruto) and Uhuru visited my Nairobi home to pledge their support only to short change me later”.

“Ruto and Uhuru in 2013 came to my house and they took tea and mandazi as we agreed on the two fronting me, but they later turned tables on me and called me‘mademoni’ (evil)”. He added.

Both Ruto and Mudavadi are keen on succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta whose second term expires in 2022.
