Yesterday at the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report at the Bomas of Kenya, Uhuru hinted something to his Deputy, William Ruto, that may put a dent in Raila Odinga’s picky ambition of occupying the House on the Hill in 2022.
Uhuru said he does not understand how his deputy forgot about their goals and started focusing on 2022 campaigns.
He used the analogy of a relay race where one runner instead of taking the baton and going forward to the finish line, runs in the opposite direction.
“ Tulisonga pamoja lakini hapa kati kati ndio sasa 2022 ikaingilIa akasahau yale mengine but nasema tutulize boli.. (We walked together, but somewhere along the journey, 2022 matters became the priority and he forgot everything else. But I’m telling him to take it slow..” Uhuru said.
“ 2022 itakuja mwaka hairudi nyuma.. Tuko relay, lakini sasa my brother William anapinduka anakimbia nyuma..mos mos.. utafika tu (2022 will come.. we are in a relay race but my brother William has decided to run in the opposite direction. We will reach there…” Uhuru added.
Many were left wondering what Ruto whispered to Uhuru.
