KTN journalist Tony Gachoka Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Deputy President William Ruto and his 2022 presidential aspirations.
Gachoka, taking to Twitter, stated that the Jubilee Coalition is on the verge of collapse, prospecting that 2020 will be the year of the grand fall-out between Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to the Point Blank host, ODM leader Raila Odinga is right in the middle of the looming Jubilee crisis, as 2022 aspirants align themselves into new political formations.
“President William Ruto is but a dream. Uhuru…will strike him a fatal blow in 2020 and Baba will shield him from the inevitable but ugly fallout,” the controversial journalist wrote.
According to Gachoka, the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was a political strategy for politicians to build new pacts, and 2020 is the year when this will come to light.
“Jubilee is dead political alignment nigh! the new BBI super formation ’20,” he added.
Further, the TV host described DP Ruto as a corrupt individual who is the least worthy of the high office.

Gachoka’s post left some questioning his integrity as a journalist since his sentiments are subjective, contrary to journalism standards.
And you claim to be a political strategist?…such sensational posts…you should start working for Cartoon Network.

Others wondered why he is so hell-bent on tainting Ruto’s name and his political dreams.
Your ranting won't change anything. It seems @WilliamsRuto gives you nightmares that you can't tweet without talking about him.. I wonder what will happen to your drunken stupor when his dreams come true, and your gutter propaganda amounting to nothing #Wajingasisi 😹😹

Others felt that Gachoka had a painful but realistic point with his attack on the deputy head of state.
He's factual and facts are stubborn.

In October, Gachoka attacked Ruto on his donations to churches, claiming that the DP was using his ‘generosity’ to buy popularity, and Kibra’s Nov. 7 by-election votes.
