Ruto allies slam Atwoli on Ruto's 2022 bid
April. 15, 2019
Allies of Deputy President William Ruto yesterday took a swipe at Central Organisation of Trade Union boss Francis Atwoli for saying the DP will not be on the presidential ballot in 2022.
On Saturday, Atwoli said in Lamu, "I want to tell you one thing, come 2022, Ruto will not be there."("Mimi nataka kuwambia kitu kimoja, jina la William Samoei Ruto haitakuwako.”
“You can take it to the bank for free, na hiyo sio mambo yangu, usijukue kama ni mambo yangu. Haya ni mambo ya mwenyezi Mungu mumba inchi, Mungu aliye ni umba mimi akanileta hapa...,”Atwoli said amid cheers.
“When 2022 comes, you won’t see Ruto anywhere. He won’t be the President, Deputy President, Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister or the rest. Only those standing for justice will have their names featured."
He asked the DP to "find something useful to do and stop lying to Kenyans as he would never lead."
Kipkelion East MP Joseph Limo said Ruto still remains the best bet to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
