It is on a Thursday and the political temperatures in the country have hit the roof.
While Raila Odinga and his team are busy wooing the Rift Valley in Nakuru, DP William Ruto is miles away in the USA championing for his Bottom-Up economic approach among the Diaspora residents.
However, it is Ruto’s continued stinging attacks on the government over alleged plans to rig the next general polls that have exposed the state in an awkward position.
Speaking at Loyola University, Maryland, Ruto accused his boss Uhuru of scheming to kill democracy in Kenya.
The DP said there are plans by the State to rig elections but expressed confidence that the same will be defeated because Kenya’s Constitution is progressive and its democracy robust.
He, however, appealed to the international community to intervene and help stop any attempts to subvert the citizen’s will.
Do you think Ruto’s claims and concerns are genuine? is the second in command keen on growing his international networks— a key factor in winning and assuming power in Africa?
