Although the close allies to DP Ruto have declined to make public the intentions and agendas of the meeting, it has been discovered that the team is work day and night to meet the DP’s expectations.
The Deputy President has faced backlash and challenges regarding his 2022 top seat ambitions, with President Uhuru with whom he had made the pact with turning a deaf ear on his plea.
The handshake between President Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga was allegedly a plot to frustrate him and bar him from becoming president in 2022.
He has been accused of being selfish and obsessed with presidency rather than deliver what he had initially promised Kenyans being second in command after the President.
“The Deputy President is very obsessed with being President that he will stop at nothing to have the ambition achieved,” said ANC leader Mudavadi during an interview.
Ruto has recruited political leaders across the county, with Western Kenya and Gusii being the main targets.
In Western, he has frequented the region with countless trips and fundraiser, having acquired foot soldiers on the ground that run and update him on every development.
These regions were referred to as the opposition zones with Raila being most popular and ideally bearing majority of votes during elections.
With Western Kenya already under his sleeve, the Gusii region vote hunt will be another added advantage to his statistics where he plans to lead by a huge margin.
