Deputy President William Ruto has escalated his onslaught against President Uhuru Kenyatta following revelations the Head of State will back one of the NASA principals in 2022. Taking to social media on Tuesday, an agitated Ruto tore into President Uhuru Kenyatta asking him why those who had supported and campaigned for him twice did not deserve his support, as he retires.
”So, what happens to the Thurakus, the kumìrà kùmèrà contingent, the 8 million of us?? None, no youth, no woman, no man of the 8M who woke up early and voted 3 times for UK/WsR ticket merit support? Sawa tu!” the DP wrote on Tuesday morning followed by an afternoon post challenging the Head of State, why he chose to destroy Jubilee, and chose to support NASA.
”So, was the destruction/dismembering of Jubilee, a national party, meant to pave way for support of regional/tribal parties in Nasa? Now, with the collapse of Jubilee, isn’t it fair for those who can’t fit in ethnic parties to build UDA as an alternative national party? Ama?” the DP posed.
Speaking on Monday when meeting leaders from Ukambani region, President Kenyatta declared he will pick his 2022 successor from among the Nasa principals if they unite and agree on a single candidate.
”Steve (Kalonzo), listen to your people and what they are saying. Unite in Nasa then we shall see what will happen. Whatever you will agree on is what I will go with,” the President said.
