- Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi said that DP Ruto has earned the trust of the Kikuyu Nation to become president in 2022
- This comes after the Nyeri town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu claimed that Central Kenya will not back the DP's presidential bid in 2022
Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi and his students from the Fort Hall school of Government on Saturday 13 January said that Deputy President William Ruto will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2022.
This comes weeks after Nyeri town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu claimed that Central Kenya will not back the Deputy Presidentâ€™s presidential bid in 2022.
One of Prof. Ngunyiâ€™s students said that DP Ruto will become president come 2022 with or without the support of the Kikuyu Nation.
â€œWith or without the Kikuyu Nation, Ruto will become president. And this is what intellectual simpletons like Ngunjiri do not get. And if the Kikuyus will betray Ruto, the entire country will regiment against them and make Ruto President in annoyance. Then the Kikuyus will be banished from politics forever. They will find themselves looking for David Ndii to show them how to do succession,â€ said the student.
Mr. Ngunyi, speaking on his YouTube channel, said that Kikuyuâ€™s are honorable people and that they will be true to you or you are true to them. He gave an illustration of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga, whom he said would have become president if he stood firm with former President Mwai Kibaki.
He, however, said that DP Ruto has been consistent with his loyalty citing that he delivered 2013 and 2017 elections and remained true to the Kikuyu Nation. Mutahi also questioned the loyalty of the Nyeri MP and asked him to do a DNA test to establish where his gene of dishonesty came from.
â€œWilliam Ruto has been consistent, he delivered 2013 and 2017 and he has been true to the GEMA Nation; he has earned their trust. And because Kikuyuâ€™s are honorable people, Iâ€™m inviting Ngunjiri Wambugu to do a DNA test, he should establish where his gene for dishonesty came from. It is not a GEMA gene, at least not in politics,â€ said Mutahi Ngunyi.
