The UDA party leader William Ruto has been piling pressure on the ANC leader Mudavadi to deliver 90+ % of the votes from his Vihiga County backyard to ward off the expected onslaught from the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga
Deputy President William Ruto is a besieged man judging by last weekend’s happenings in his backyard of Uasin Gishu County. At a political rally graced by Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua, DP Ruto was publicly rejected by elders from his community who dismissed him as untrustworthy.
After suffering humiliation from elders in his community, the DP has turned his anger against colleagues in the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, he is now demanding from his top allies in the alliance, (ANC) party’s Muasalia Mudavadi and Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetangula that they must secure at least 90% of the votes in his favour from their backyard of western Kenya, tough challenge for the duo.
The rebel DP now argues that securing 70% vote in western Kenya as planned earlier from the duo to secure lucrative jobs in his government if he wins the August 9th general elections “was too little.” The besieged (UDA) leader has been piling pressure on ANC leader Mudavadi to deliver 90+ % of the votes from his Vihiga County backyard to ward off the expected onslaught from the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula have both pitched camps in Vihiga and Bungoma counties respectively, campaigning for their Principal William Ruto in his quest for the State House job in an attempt to succeed his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In Hamisi Dr Ruto was accompanied by Mr Mudavadi and Mr Wetang’ula in his last-ditch campaign effort to secure the Presidency, he asked the duo to convince the more than 310,000 voters in Vihiga County alone to vote for him to boost the numbers in his favour
When the DP held a political rally in Hamisi sub-county stadium in Vihiga County recently, he publicly told Musalia that the 75% vote expected from him as proposed earlier is “too little.” The mounting pressure for more votes from the region comes in the last few days to the General Election and at a time when the region’s leaders are on a charm offensive to persuade more voters to guarantee them a 30% stake in Ruto’s government.
Mr Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Wetang’ula had set a target of 70 % from the entire western; the target has dramatically been escalating to 90% by Ruto. This clearly shows that the duo who have not been accorded any significant roles in Ruto’s presidential campaign team are headed for big trouble whether the man from Sugoi wins or loses in the August 9th general elections.
In Hamisi Dr Ruto was accompanied by Mr Mudavadi and Mr Wetang’ula in his last-ditch campaign effort to secure the Presidency, he asked the duo to convince the more than 310,000 voters in Vihiga County alone to vote for him to boost the numbers in his favour. DP Ruto says voters in Vihiga should turn up in large numbers on August 9 and deliver the votes to him as part of the deal with Mr Mudavadi saying: “The 75% Vihiga people want to give us is little. This should be at least pulled up. Ninety per cent is near a better outcome. Give us that.” He argued that giving him the high numbers he desperately needed would help stop his rival in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya from arguing about the outcome of the elections in court.
The man from Sugoi said: “You can see Raila is already fighting IEBC. We don’t want to give him any chance to cause violence by uprooting the railway, going to Supreme Court or swearing himself in,” ironically William Ruto is the one who is talking about violence and facing imaginary threats from his boss, Uhuru Kenyatta whom he says “should not kill his family.”
