Politics
Ruto has been positioning himself to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta

Jubilee should make public any deals involving the presidential transition in 2022, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has said.

"Kenyans are not privy to any information about a deal struck between the President and his deputy in Jubilee Party over a planned succession of the President," Mudavadi (right) said.

The ANC leader was addressing the press outside the Kisumu Christ is the Answer Ministries,(Citam) church.

DP William Ruto has been positioning himself to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta when he retires in 2022.

But since the newfound unity between Opposition chief Raila Odinga and Uhuru, following the March 2018 political truce - handshake - Ruto's allies claim the President will betray the DP. 

"What does such a deal leave those of us and others interested in the Presidency if at all it was hatched?" Mudavadi asked.

Speaking in Bondo, on Saturday, Raila claimed Kenyans are not aware of such a deal and Ruto should therefore not impose his will on Kenyans.

As if reading from a similar script, Mudavadi said: "There is no constitutional provision of an automatic ticket to Presidency."

The former Vice President warned that the country's economy is facing a debt crisis. On debt he said: "This signals a bleak future for the government which if not careful may sink into a debt crisis."
