Friday June 7, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid has suffered a huge blow after a vocal Kalenjin community MP endorsed National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, for the top seat in 2022.
Commenting on social media on Friday,Ainabkoi MP , William Chepkut,said Raila Odinga is the man the country needs after President Uhuru Kenyatta retires in 2022.
He likened Raila Odinga to late former South African President, Nelson Mandela who made peace with Boer leader, FW.de Clerk and eliminated apartheid in South Africa.
He also said that if Raila Odinga is elected as President, he should name Economist David Ndii as Finance Minister.
“This guy may deliver a Mandela Moment in this Country. Just for one term to clean and restore order and retire peacefully. Extra Ordinary moments requires extra Ordinary measures. The proverbial Silver bullet. With as CS Finance,” Chepkut wrote on his social media.
Chepkut’s choice of words is a big blow for William Ruto since the man had earlier endorsed Ruto’s presidency in 2022.
