President Kenyatta breaks his silence on 2022 succession battle

28 June 2016, 11:58 Samuel arap Yego

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally broken his silence over his succession in 2022 after he completes his 10 year term.

The Head of State Tuesday while reacting to reports that his Kikuyu community will not back his Deputy President William Ruto’s bid for the top seat in the country, maintained that Ruto has his support.

Munyori Buku, a Senior Director of Public Communication at statehouse in a press statement said President Kenyatta has been categorical about the 2022 Jubilee ticket.

“He has made it very clear that the party will fully back Deputy President William Ruto. The President has explained that 10 years of his own term are not long enough to implement the grand plan Jubilee has for Kenya. He has pointed out this super plan needs about 20 years to implement,” explained Buku.

He noted that Ruto has been part of Kenyatta’s transformational agenda and it is therefore crucial that he be the one to take the agenda forward.

“Jubilee has brought bountiful peace not only in the Rift Valley, but also in many other conflict-prone areas. The Jubilee ticket of President Kenyatta and Deputy President Ruto is good for its supporters and good for Kenya,” he added.

Buku heaped praise on Ruto, pointing out that  he is doing an excellent job and has proved his abilities, acumen and diligence as a leader.

“Those haranguing the country over the 2022 election are wasting their time. The reaction of Jubilee supporters and many other Kenyans have been absolutely clear in their support for the Deputy President,” concluded Buku.
