Deputy President William Ruto ability to remain politically a float amidst turbulences and wrath of political machinations unleashed against him has left many of his Political nemeses wondering the magic behind his survival. Ruto entered 2021 nursing Political injuries of 2020 brought by his the endless impeachments of his lieutenants from key parliamentary committees, his office stripped of its powers and humiliations becoming a daily ordeal.
However, 2021 looks promising to Ruto thanks to a saving hand that has come for his salvation at a time when he dearly needed help. Former Machakos county senator’ s decision to register and unveil United Democracy Alliance (UDA) party has given Ruto solace. Leaders allied to Tanga Tanga had it rough from Uhuru’ s men profoundly referred to as Kieleweke who seemingly can’ t stand to see Ruto become Kenya’ s next Head of State. Kieleweke had found it a hobby to punch and ‘monolize’ Ruto’ s allies but that now is a thing of the past courtesy of Johnstone Muthama’ s doing.
Ruto’ s saviour was a strong supporter and political student of the ODM leader Raila Odinga. Muthama has been a longtime ally and campaigns strategist of Odinga before calling it quits at Odinga’ s camp and declared he will rally support behind DP Ruto. Not only does the flamboyant businessman bring in his political experience to Ruto’ s aid but he will play a big role in financing Ruto’ s Political activities.
The Ukambani political bigwig is not only leading Tanga Tanga Legislators out Jubilee Party (JP) ahead of 2022 but has also promised to bring the 1. 6 million votes in Ukambani region to Ruto’ s basket in 2022.
Muthama has tactically outsmarted the system in the fight against Ruto and has 2022 fast approaches he has undoubtedly turned out to be Ruto’ s greatest political asset who will play a great role in ensuring Ruto’ s Political ambitions are successful.
