Speaker of the National Assembly says electing Deputy President William Ruto to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta next year would be a grave mistake the country cannot afford to make.
Muturi, who has declared his intention to run for the top seat next year while speaking in Meru over the weekend warned residents of Mt Kenya against putting their trust in the DP, describing him as a wolf in a sheep coat who might turn against the people if elected as president.
”I now hear that you have come up with a national party. I haven’t mentioned any specific politician from this region, but I am aware that there is no angel in that party. Today he (Ruto) approaches you, enticing you with jokes, but when he wins the elections, you know what will happen. You will be locked outside,” Muturi said.
The speaker also explained to residents how his previous interactions with Ruto painted a different picture compared to the image he gives electorates in his campaign rallies around Mt Kenya. JB Muturi claimed that Ruto doesn’t have the country’s interest at heart.
On whether UDA was the right vehicle for the people of Mt Kenya, and if the region should dissolve their political parties for the Ruto outfit, Muturi said political coalitions were the only way to go, and that governments can only be formed using alliances when political parties work together.
