Support me in 2017, I support you in 2022, Raila tells DP Ruto
13 June 2016, 17:21
Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has told DP William Ruto to support his bid for the Presidency in 2017, so Ruto gets his support come the 2022 polls.
The CORD leader says that Ruto will need his support come 2022 because the Kikuyu will not support his bid for the Presidency once President Uhuru Kenyatta is out of the picture.
He added that the DP will be served better to support him as he is not interested in the Presidency at the moment.
" I have no issue with the DP. However, as some leaders from Central Kenya have already told him, he will find it hard come 2022 because they will not vote for him," he said Monday.
The DP has been told by Kiambu Governor William Kabogo that he will have no guarantee that the Kikuyu vote will be his come 2022.
And Raila has turned the screw once again.
" We all know what will happen come 2022 and the DP being a bright man knows too. The time is now to guarantee my support ahead," he added.
The DP is already on record as saying he is behind President Uhuru Kenyatta come the 2017 polls.
