Speaking on his 5th Estate show, Mutahi Ngunyi said that no one has ever become president in Kenya on their first attempt at the top seat in the country.
“Uhuru tried once gave up the second time for Kibaki and then tried a third time. This is how he became president. Raila has tried to become president since 1997 he has run four times as president and he will run for a fifth time in 2022 this man is still trying,” he said.
He further state that another reason Raila had the upper hand at becoming president was because he had mastered the craft of power which according to him DP Ruto does not understand.
“Why Raila is looking better than Ruto is because Raila understands the craft of power and this is why he went underground but Ruto does not understand the craft of power he does not understand the rhythms of the times. There is a time to do politics and a time to do leadership, a time to be bold and to do bold things and a time to do popular things, a time to take in pain and a time to fight pain,” he added.
The man known for the phrase ‘The tyranny of numbers’ however said that his bet was still on DP William Ruto as the man who will be president in 2022.
