DEEP STATE plans to rig DP Ruto
Deputy President William Ruto has exposed alleged plans to rig him out of the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Speaking at his Karen home when he met leaders from Kajiado county, DP Ruto alleged that well connected individuals have been holding meetings, scheming against his bid.
“Tunatishiwa ati kuna system,ati deep state, ati hata tukipiga kura watatuibia, kuna watu wameketi mahali fulani wanangojea, watakuja na deep state, tutakuja na Wananchi na mungu,” Ruto said.
He stated that his team has been threatened that whatever the outcome of the vote, he would be rigged out by the so-called system.
He maintained that he will overcome all obstacles in his bid to succeed Uhuru, referring back to similar challenges he faced in 2013.
“In 2013, I was being threatened, If I was afraid, or if President Uhuru Kenyatta was afraid, we would have had the Jubilee government, its is the same thing we are being told now,” added DP Ruto.
His remarks come barely a few days after Jubilee party vice-chairman David Murathe boldly endorsed Raila as the preferred candidate to succeed Uhuru, making it clear that plans are underway to endear him (Odinga) to mount Kenya voters with a new political outfit in the offing.
A few days earlier, Odinga’s brother, Oburu Oginga exuded confidence that Raila will win the 2022 race, boldly claiming that they (Raila and his team) now have the support of the system.
