Big blow to RUTO as RICHARD ECHESA dumps him for MUSALIA MUDAVADI – We want a Luhya Presidency in 2022

Sunday June 9,2019-Deputy President William Ruto ‘s presidential bid in 2022 has received a huge setback after former Sports Cabinet Secretary , Richard Echesa, dumped him for Amani National Congress(ANC) party leader , Musalia Mudavadi.

Echesa was Ruto’s point man in Western Kenya and the DP was hoping that he will rally Luhya community electorate to support his bid in 2022.

But speaking on Saturday, Echesa asked the Luhya the community to rally behind Mudavadi for one of their own to ascend to power.

The CS, who was sacked from the Cabinet early this year, said that Kenyan politics today has gone tribal where people retreat to their respective communities and put them together to negotiate with others and take power.

“I cannot be a supporter of another person. If anyone wants, he or she should come and sit with Musalia [Mudavadi] together with us so that we can form government together,” Echesa said told mourners during a funeral in Mumias.

He said he will use all his resources to campaign for Mudavadi’s presidential bid in 2022.

“I am ready to use anything to ensure that a Luhya is president of this country but I want Musalia to be more aggressive. If it means being a gentleman, you have been enough. Now stamp your feet on the ground,” he said.

When Mudavadi rose to speak he maintained that his name must be in the presidential ballot in 2022.
