A tough political battle is expected during Kiamba by-election this week

DP Ruto’s brigade preparing for “victory celebrations" in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s home

By The Weekly Vision

Fresh from an invigorating three-day private visit to Uganda, deputy president William Ruto is back with a bang. Dr Ruto is daring his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta to “bring it on” like a boxer warming up for a boxing match.

Ruto allies have told President Uhuru to prepare for “humiliating defeat” at the July 15 by-election, but Kenyatta has vowed to win “at all cost”. The president told his front men “defeat” in his backyard was not an option they should entertain.

The Kiamba poll is likely to be one of the most closely watched and contested by-elections in recent times, possibly the last major by-election before the 2022 duel

DP Ruto’s brigade is understood to be preparing for an early win and is preparing for “victory celebrations” in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s home. The DP’S central Kenya strategists including fiery Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, and Kimani Ichungwa, have told “thankless” Uhuru to forget Kiambaa.

They are asking the president to prepare for retirement and forget the people he once called “wachenzi” to build new political bridges without him in power. The Kiamba poll is likely to be one of the most closely watched and contested by-elections in recent times, possibly the last major by-election before the 2022 duel.

President Uhuru campaigners have combed the vastly local Kikuyu home-turf urging voters to give Kenyatta a “befitting retirement” bonus. The Weekly Vision has established that Uhuru strategists have camped at Kikuyu FM stations and TV networks to fine-tune final touches.

The president’s unrelenting clock-like ethnic driven campaigns on radio and TV could bear some fruits if factors remain constant, some watchers have claimed.
