Sunday January 6, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto’s chances of becoming President are growing slimmer by the day.
This is after Nairobi Speaker Beatrice Elachi also severed links with him over his 2022 bid, saying the DP will never become President.
Speaking during the burial of Lugari MP Ayub Savula daughter, Joanne Chepchirchir, at Manyonyi Village, Elachi, one of the DPs close allies, surprised many by rallying leaders from Western to back one of their own instead of trouping to Sugoi.
She said the region must support Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi instead of the hustler from Sugoi.
“As a community, 2019 is a year of reflection and focus, we must start planning strategically so that our people benefits from the resources sharing formula,” said Ms Elachi.
“Our leaders trouping to Sugoi should stop forthwith and focus on working with Mudavadi to enhance the region’s chances of producing a President,” she added.
Her denouncement of Ruto is a major political setback to the DP especially after Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa also abandoned him.
