The battle lines are getting drawn as political formations for Deputy President William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga begin to emerge.
Raila was in his element at the meeting that has now sent tongues wagging over his possible candidature in the General Election.
Although elections are two years away, Ruto is taking nothing to chance and is thoroughly planning his presidential bid but what is notable is that he is crafting an image of being his own man, away from the shadow of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration.Having probably given up on a possible endorsement by President Kenyatta, the DP has decided to go flat out and solidify his political base.
however DP Rutos tribulations appear to be piling up , after it emerged that he was denied access to his official residence in Mombasa.
A report by the Sunday Nation says that Ruto arrived in Mombasa at mid-morning on Wednesday and proceeded to attend to his scheduled business of the day.In the evening, he was scheduled to spend the night at the newly-refurbished former Coast Provincial Commissioner’s official residence.
The trouble befalling DP william Ruto clearly now indicates that the race to clinch power in 2022 is not a walk in the park,with now Raila Odinga guns ablaze ,enjoying a backing of around 20 governors and over 70 MP’s.With the NASA coalition termed dead ,Odinga is key to have Jubilee disbanded to put room for a neutral playground come 2022.
