The Honeymoon Is Over! Ruto To Dump Uhuru In 2017. Here Is What He Is Planning To Do
Sources privy to the URP politics allege that the URP wing of the Jubilee government is planning to ditch president Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017. Most URP politicians and especially those from Rift Valley are of the opinion that in 2017, Ruto should dump Uhuru and vie for the top most seat alongside Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba as his running mate.
In the event that things fail to work for the two, they will abandon their bid and support CORD leader Raila Odinga. It is believed that TNA is playing cards on the issue of having Ruto succeed Uhuru in 2022 and that’s why they are planning to go their own way in 2017. It must also be remembered that recently Ruto advised Raila to drop Kalonzo in 2017 if at all he wants to win the 2017 elections. Political pundits believe that this was a hidden way of Ruto telling Raila that they can work together again in 2017.
On the other side, Uhuru’s TNA is very much aware of the calculations Ruto is doing and they have thus contacted Musalia Mudavadi’s side just in case Ruto crosses over. Mudavadi is working closely with Former Minster Fred Gumo and Funyula Mp Paul Otwoma in ensuring that they seize the opportunity to be Uhuru’s running mate as this will better position Mudavadi in the 2022 race.
