Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has expressed optimism that Mt Kenya voters would elect Ruto in 2022.
Waititu said that no one should cheat Kenyans that the DP will not receive support from Central, adding that the original plan of the region backing Ruto in 2022 is intact.
“As the people of Mount Kenya region, we follow development. And we know and we have seen the kind of work our Deputy President has done in terms of development. All the other things are just noise, empty stories, and vague politics,” Waititu said.
The governor told the people of Western to join the campaign for Ruto to succeed President Kenyatta.
Waititu took a swipe at those opposed to DP Ruto, adding that everyone regardless their background is free to seek the country’s top leadership position. Ruto will take over the mantle despite his humble background, he said.
“Let people know that any child in this country however poor they are or even if he is of a single mother can be a leader. For that reason in 2022 we shall follow the son of the poor, who has been a hustler, who has sold chicken and risen to the level he is now, and that is none other than William Samoei Ruto.”
Waititu said Raila cannot decide the leader of this country.
Raila did nothing citizens can be proud of during his time as the Prime Minister, he said.
Kibera remains the worst slum in Kenya despite Raila serving as MP for Lang’ata for many years, Waititu said.
