Deputy President William Ruto and Musalia Mudavadi men last night held a meeting in Nairobi where a possibility of the two camps working together in 2022 was discussed.
The meeting is coming just few days after the ANC leader joined DP Ruto in criticising the BBI following the Court of Appeal ruling, with the two leaders claiming the joint Uhuru-Raila project has been a waste to tax-payers money.
According to a source within Mudavadi’s ANC, Kenyans should expect frequent engagement between the two camps as the country heads toward 2022 and that people should not be shocked if Mudavadi and Ruto run on a joint ticket next year, with Mudavadi as President.
”The meeting is a resumpsion of engagement between the two camps which took a halt. They were put on hold last year but now Kenyans should expect frequent meetings between the two groups,” a source confided to this publication.
The rumors of an impending Mudavadi, Ruto union seem to have been intensified following claims of a fallout between the ANC leader and handlers of President Uhuru Kenyatta who insist Mudavadi lacks the political clout and following to beat the DP in 2022, and therefore, should drop his presidential bid to back Raila Odinga, who is the head of state’s preferred choice.
Last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta met Raila Odinga and OKA principals at State House in Mombasa, to follow up on a similar meeting which had asked the party’s leaders to put in place frameworks in their respective outfits to see them backing ODM next year, as part of a new alliance being woven together by Raila and the president.
