BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,4TH AUG,2021-A section of ODM MPs now claim that Deputy President William Ruto is planning to use force to capture power during the 2022 elections.
Led by Suna East legislator Junet Mohammed, the MPs said Ruto is seeking to borrow from Uganda’s National Resistance Movement (NRM) to ascend to the highest office.
“While we don’t wish to interfere with the internal political arrangements in other Countries, we want to state categorically that we don’t need to borrow from other Countries political habits whose end results can only lead to chaos and backwardness for our Country,” They said.
Junet has therefore warned Kenyans to be wary of Ruto saying he is not fit to be President.
“In embracing NRM with its authoritarian, undemocratic, antagonistic, expansionist and anti-competition tendencies, DP Ruto reveals to all that life under him will be worse and that in the event he captures power, he will never relinquish it,” They said.
The MPs claim Dp Ruto is seeking advise from NRM on how to destabilize the Country in the event he loses the elections.
They pointed out that NRM’s record on human rights, democracy, good governance, freedom of the press, fighting corruption among others not worth emulating.
While describing the Deputy President as a dictator, the MPs said he can’t be trusted with the Country’s young democracy adding that he will not observe Presidential term limits.
