Deputy President William Ruto is prepping himself for the 2022 presidential elections and is said to have already identified a running mate.
The DP, whose image has been badly tainted with corruption dealings, is said to be shopping for a possible running mate with a squeaky clean image. According to our birdie, Ruto has approached Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Okengo Matiangi to be his possible running mate.
Ruto, our sources reveal, wants to sanitize his reputation that is soiled with land grabbing tags among other scandalous allegations.
Dr. Fred Matiangi is the man who will provide the DP with the antidote that is his reputation. The former Information, Communication and Technology CS has proved to be no push over.
He has streamlined the Education ministry in a fashion not seen in the history of Kenya. His predecessor Prof Prof Jacob Kaimenyi was a total mess when he was the head of the ministry. His negotiations skills was wanting catalyzing the longest teachers strike ever experienced in Kenya prompting the President to move him to a lesser involving ministry.
Political pundits aver that this may be a good move given Matiangi track record, however, the question remains if the Kisii will bring the required numbers on the table to elevate Ruto to the Presidency.
DP has been traversing the country to in a bid to sell the Jubilee Party and castigate Cord leader Raila Odinga for being as corrupt as the rest of the politicians who partake from the public coffers.
