uesday, June 15, 2021 -President Uhuru Kenyatta is still the talk of town following his remarks on who he wants to support for top seat in the next elections.
In his speech at Statehouse where he hosted a number of Ukambani leadership on Monday June 14, Uhuru came close to mentioning the exact person he wants to support to take over from him.
He declared his desire to support whoever the National Super Alliance NASA coalition will pick as their flag bearer. He clarified that it is the unity of NASA that will inform his next bold move.
“Steve (Kalonzo), listen to your people and what they are saying. Unite in NASA then we shall see what will happen. Whatever you will agree on is what I will go with,” Uhuru said.

The president’s comments seemed to have rubbed Dr. Ruto’s wing the wrong way with the DP seeking to know why his boss would make such a remark when he knows very well how he received unconditional support from him(Ruto) twice.
“So, what happens to the Thurakus, the kumìrà kùmèrà contingent, the 8 million of us? None, no youth, no woman, no man of the 8M who woke up early and voted 3 times for Uhuru Kenyatta/William Samoei Ruto ticket merit support?” Ruto posed on Twitter.
This is therefore a very big blow to Ruto who was still having hopes of changing Uhuru’s mind before 2022 so that he could get his support.
