Has Ruto Hinted Over an Alliance With Mudavadi in Latest Message?

Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday tweeted a Biblical phrase and tagged the ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi leaving Kenyans guessing whether he had begun working with the Luhya leader in his bid to capture the 2022 presidential seat.

In his message, Ruto tweeted: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. ~ Matthew 28:19 @MusaliaMudavadi.”

The fact that the DP could not tag alone senior leaders accompanying at the function, including  Energy CS Charles Keter, Senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho) among others, left many on social media wondering whether the DP had declared that he had converted the ANC party leader to his follower.

The DP and Mudavadi have hardly been seen together in many events that Ruto has graced over the weekend.

The Sunday presence was one of a kind that Mudvadi was spotted sitting along Ruto and seemingly sharing some light moments.

Important to note, that ANC party leader and the DP have both declared interest to run for the top seat come 2022.

It is a matter of time to see whether the ANC party leader will shelve his ambition to support DP Ruto who apparently will not miss being in the ballot.

The recent move come at a time when the DP is aking inroads in Western Kenya in his bid to ostensibly scuttle the opposition’s unity ahead of the 2022 General Elections.

The DP managed to woe the former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale to his camp to the extent that he decamped from Ford Kenya party to join the ruling Jubilee Party.

Though the ANC party leader has on record declared that he will be in the ballot, it is a matter of time to see whether the two will broker a deal as they head towards 2022.
