DP Ruto advised to develop a back up plan for 2022

Nakuru - Deputy President William Ruto has been advised to have a political plan B for the 2022 general elections should the Mount Kenya region dump him.
Nakuru based political expert and activist Jonathan Rotich said that it will be risky for Ruto to put all his eggs in one basket as he prepares for his first stab at the top job in 2022.
Rotich said that Ruto should seriously look at the voting history and pattern of the Mount Kenya region as well as their faithfulness at honoring political agreements and MOU’s.
Speaking Monday morning at a forum in Nakuru, Rotich said Kenyan politics is very much unpredictable and 2022 might not be any different.

“As much as we want to believe that our brothers from the other side will support Ruto in 2022, it is also very crucial for him to have a plan B just in case things don’t work out as expected,” said Rotich.
“It will be sad for Ruto to rely on one plan and then realize at a very advanced stage that things cannot work out. That is why he must be very careful with his language because he seems to be stepping on the toes of people he might just need in 2022,” he said.
“His advisers should tell him that it’s politically wrong for him to go round the country attacking certain groups of people because you never know what might happen in 2022,” he said.
Rotich further said that Ruto should be busy working on his 2022 plan B instead of attacking the opposition day in day out.
