Tuesday, January 25, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto is a political genius, at least after managing to beat President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake buddy, Raila Odinga, to bag ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart, Moses Wetangula.
According to Garissa Township MP Aden Duale, it took creative persuasion from the DP to convince Mudavadi and Wetangula to join him.
Speaking during an interview, the former Majority leader noted that the OKA principals had many suitors, stating that the president was leading the Azimio team in seeking the support of the principals.
But unlike Uhuru and Raila, who were using thorax to woo the OKA leaders, Ruto was more persuasive in his approach.
“Wetangula, Musalia, and Kalonzo have been courted by so many people. They were first approached by Azimio and it is no secret that Uhuru met them in the morning and evening telling them that they must isolate the Deputy President and support Raila.”
“They worked very hard to persuade them but we also did not sleep.
“We have also courted them. The only difference between ours and that of Uhuru and Raila is that ours did not have arrogance and chest-thumping,” he stated.
Additionally, Duale asserted that all the OKA principals had worked with Raila and had shown disinterest in a new partnership with the ODM leader.
“He (Uhuru) did not know one thing. The three have worked with Raila for 10 years and they know him very well more than Ruto and Uhuru,” he stated.
