The DP William Ruto accompanied by leaders from the Coast region and other parts of the country pitched camp on the coast, an area considered to the opposition stronghold. The DP William Ruto did inspect development projects and also met leaders as he continues to strategize ahead of 2022 elections where he is seeking to become president when Uhuru Kenyatta finishes his second and final term as the head of state.
According to the renowned media house here in Kenya, the businessman was denied access to his residence and was heard threatening to decamp to Odinga’s camp.
“The man was blocked by security officers from accessing the DP at his private residence. Bitter and feeling shortchanged, the operative is said to be plotting to cross over to opposition chief Raila Odinga’s camp in a matter of a week,” read part of the report from the newspaper.
“He is said to have threatened a local politician, accusing him of scheming to block him from the DP. There are indications that the DP, who hitherto has been in good books with the operative, has decided to shun him in preference for other people,” continued the report.
