Ruto is the cleverest, most organized leader in Kenya- Raila’s former advisor

Orange Democratic Leader (ODM) Raila Odinga’s advisor Salim Lone said that Deputy President William Ruto is the cleverest and the most organized leader in Kenya.

Mr Lone, who made the remarks on Tuesday November 6 on his Facebook account, attributed his sentiments after saying that most people thought DP Ruto has no chance in the 2022 General Elections due the handshake between Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“The Handshake lulled many into believing Ruto 2022 was now finished. Ruto is just about cleverest, most organized leader in Kenya,” stated Mr Lone.

“Look at this line up and the one at the Coast with 22 MPs in September. Mega corruption is not a handicap but an essential strength for winning votes and politicians in our totally broken system. Keep organizing, including to change system!” he added.

His remarks also come after Luhya leaders declared their support in Ruto’s Presidential bid in 2022.

The leaders showed their support after accompanying Ruto for interdenominational prayers in Kakamega County.
