Deputy President William Ruto also told President Kenyatta to stop interfering with the country’s succession politics, saying such a move would taint his image ahead of his retirement after the August elections
ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and his western Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula have warned President Uhuru Kenyatta that they will not allow him to succeed himself in office through the Presidency of ODM’s Raila Odinga.
Deputy President William Ruto also told President Kenyatta to stop interfering with the country’s succession politics, saying such a move would taint his image ahead of his retirement after the August elections. They spoke at a series of campaign rallies in Mudavadi’s home county of Vihiga yesterday.
“We will not allow you to succeed yourself, because the sovereign authority on succession lies with the people of Kenya,” he said. Mudavadi claimed Kenyatta’s backing Raila is repeating the events that saw Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) President Felix Tshisekedi rise from being a last compromise opposition candidate to defeat then Vice-President Martin Fayulu in the 2019 presidential polls.
“Azimio’s riddle has been solved. We have now realized that the owner of Azimio is none other than Uhuru Kenyatta. He wants to be the overall Chairman and allow Raila, his puppet to take the Presidency so that he can rule by proxy,” Mudavadi claimed. “President Kenyatta will not generate any votes from the factory for Raila Odinga. The President has only one vote,” said Wetangula.
He repeated his claims that Kenyans would not bow to pressure to elect a puppet president whose responsibility will be to protect the wealth of some few individuals at the expense of millions of ordinary citizens.
“Kenyans want to elect individuals who will take the country to the next level in terms of development. They are not interested in a puppet whose work will be to protect wealth belonging to few people,” said Ruto.
