Deputy President William Ruto has been warned by his political opponents not to ignore the matiang’i factor comes 2022 presidential race.
Ruto has declared that he will run for the presidency and nothing will stop him achieving his career dream.
Over the last year, the DP has found himself in a hot pan after being accused of stealing public money in preparation to fund his 2022 campaign.
Now analysts state that Matiang’i influence across the Country can’t be ignored and the DP should consider picking him as a candidate.
Recently president Uhuru Kenyatta appointed him as the super Cs to oversee the operations of the ministries.
Since he was appointed in 2013, Matiang’i has become a household name because of his no-nonsense stand and commitment to work. This has earned him trust and confidence from the President. But if he opts to run, I want to disagree with those saying he does not pose any threat. He could pull a surprise.
A section of leaders from Kisii County have endorsed Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i for the Deputy President’s seat in the next General Election.
Speaking during a fundraiser for Nyakembene Primary School in Boikang’a Ward, Kisii County, the leaders said Dr. Matiang’i had an impressive track record, hence, he is fit to be the country’s second in command.
Jubilee nominated Senator Millicent Omanga and South Mugirango legislator Silvanus Osoro appealed to any leader seeking the electorate’s support for the presidential position in 2022 to first consider having Matiang’i as their running mate.
“William Ruto is assured of winning the Presidency in 2022 with our brother Fred Matiang’i as the Deputy President, they make a good combination since they are both workaholics,” said Senator Omanga.
MP Osoro, on his part, said the region was looking at a possible DP William Ruto and CS Matiang’i partnership in the 2022 race for the top seat.
“Our brother Matiang’i has performed exemplary in his duties as a Cabinet Secretary for the last five years. We believe he is the best candidate to be the Deputy President in 2022,” said Osoro.
Also Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has already stated that he will pick Matiang’i as his candidate.
Kuria has declared interest to Run for presidency 2022.
Now political analyst have requested deputy president not to under estimate the power and influence of Matiang’i across the Country.
They argue that Matiang’i can either make or break Ruto’s ambition.
