Economist David Ndii has attacked political dynasties saying Kenya is better off with Deputy President William Ruto at the helm as opposed to political dynasties.
Ndii, however, noted that progressive Kenyans should send both Ruto and political dynasties home in 2022 if the country is to realise change.
“Let me be clear. The imperative for progressive forces is to send both Ruto and the dynasties home” he said adding that “but if God forbid we must suffer one evil let us suffer Ruto – him we have a fighting chance”.
In Ndii’s view, “If we don’t uproot the dynasties in 2022, they will enslave up to our grandchildren.”
The renowned economist also criticised the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Report for failing to address electoral reforms in the country.
He claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta stole the 2017 presidential elections, while at the same time, accused Orange Democratic Movement Raila Odinga of betraying Kenyans who agitated for electoral reforms after the disputed polls.
Uhuru Kenyatta stole an election. Raila traded people’s quest for electoral justice for a personal, secret deal. The victims are excited by diversionary red herrings that have nothing to do with this impunity as we hurtle to another election up for stealing.

Uhuru and Raila are regarded as political dynasties since their fathers, Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, served as President and Vice President in the first government after independence.
Baringo Senator Gideon Moi is also viewed as belonging to the political dynasties being the son of former president Daniel Moi.
Ruto, on the other hand, has branded himself as a hustler who rose from a humble family to become the deputy president.
