Jubilee MPs have tasked President Uhuru Kenyatta to come out and say who he is supporting for president in 2022.Speaking in a closed door meeting attended mainly by Rift Valley MPs,they questioned why Uhuru is quiet when Gideon and Ruto are roasting each other in public.
One MP said after the meeting: “we know you love Gideon and we know you’ve been with Ruto through thick and thin. But we want you to come clear on this issue .Your silence is causing tension in Jubilee and it’s time you give us your opinion”.
Uhuru’s silence has been growing ever since he was re-elected to State House. Even the chemistry between him and his deputy has decayed. It’s worrying that not even his close allies know what’s planning, but we are sure what he will do.You see, it’s Moi who made him what he is today.You can’t expect Uhuru to ignore Gideon and support Ruto.What we believe is that Uhuru won’t support Ruto openly, never. Even if Rift Valley leaders pressure him, the best he will do is to tell Kenyans to make informed choice, but deep inside he will pray for Gideon to succeed him.
