Retired Chief Justice Willy Mutunga says Deputy President William Ruto will trounce ODM leader Raila Odinga in the 2022 presidential contest.
Mutunga argues that Ruto has managed to endear himself to voters through his hustler narrative and Odinga must rethink his strategy if he wants to beat the deputy president in next year’s duel.
While admitting that he dislikes Ruto’s politics, Mutunga hailed the deputy president as a clever man, saying his hustler movement is challenging the “status quo.”
“He [Ruto] is extremely clever. Dangerous as it may sound, the hustler thing is challenging the status quo, the haves versus the have-nots, Ruto is among the haves,” said Mutunga.
He observed that despite being wealthy, Ruto has succeeded in portraying himself as a hustler and tricking Kenyans into believing that he is suffering just like them. Mutunga thinks Ruto’s advisory team is doing a remarkable job while that of Raila has let him down.
“Raila has been let down by his intellectual team… The thing is, Ruto has cornered them because they can’t oppose his bottom-up narrative,” Mutunga stated.
“Ruto works with very sharp advisors and once he is informed on what to do, he also uses his wisdom and it becomes easier for him to maneuver.”
I truly pity Kenyan who believes this man Ruto. Mt Kenya politican are let down to Kenyan they all embraced Ruto regardless of his integrity
Most MT Kenya folks are following Ruto because they are thieves like him! They CD will vote for Ruto and within a short time Ruto will start killing them one by one! That’s when they will wake up and start putting Mungiki together to fight Ruto! Ultimately another 2007 massacre will arise because Ruto will start kicking Kikuyus out of the Rift Valley embassy!
Khaemba, if Mt. Kenya folks are thieves (generalization), does that mean Western folks are ingokho lovers (generalization) like some people say?
Both Ruto, and RAO should not lead in any country, unfortunately, that's where Kenya is. They have used their money to silence competition including Prof Kibwana, Dr. Kituyi, etc. I thought the press is above corruption, but even them have been compromised.
Here you got a corrupt former CJ rooting for the most corrupt DP Ruto! I blame Kenyans for being stupid! Both Mutunga and Ruto would be in jail over corruption issues if they lived in advanced countries!
Haves and have nots.....dynasty vs none dynasty....rich vs poor... up-bottom vs bottom-up ...at the end of the day, hii yote ni kitu moja, n am afraid Mutunga could be right.
William Ruto has women as his political advisor like Anne Waiguru.
That’s his secret.
He is a trickster. He should not be in government.
Amollo Oginga,the murderer/cannibalizer of 1300 innocent people is Kenya’s most corrupt person alive today.Majambazi Wako and Tobiko should do Kenya a favor like Sonko and confess the amount they were bribed by this demon to enable him escape murder charges.It is a pity that some people are busy pointing jambazzi Ruto as head thug but cannot question Uhuru’s theft of shs 200b EUROBOND & shs 217b COVID loans.Uhuru also presides EATING of shs 2b daily from billionaire Kenyans.

"Both Ruto, and RAO should not lead in any country, unfortunately, that's where Kenya is. They have used their money to silence competition including Prof Kibwana, Dr. Kituyi, etc. I thought the press is above corruption, but even them have been compromised."
“Ruto works with very sharp advisors and once he is informed on what to do, he also uses his wisdom and it becomes easier for him to maneuver.”Sounds like a tial balloon to me... instigated by RAO's campaign camp.
These comments to me imply that voters are just puppets to me manipulated,and"maneuvered".Lets not be fooled by campaign rhetoric from these politicians.
Raila,and Ruto have been in government for along time. Meaning that they have heard opportunity to effect their causes.Neither of them will bring anything new that Uhuru has not tried.They are only after power. Let's try someone new come 2022.
Raila has been in Gov't for a total of 8 yrs, and not for a long time as you put it. From 1999 to 2002 and from 2008 to 2013. That's it. Ruto worked for Kanu govt from 1990 to 2002, joined Kibaki from 2008 to 2013 and is now DP for 8 years, that's a total of 25 years.
