It's on the public domain that William Ruto's team will in the next few months hit the campaign trail hard. Ruto is among the hopefuls who are eyeing to inherit Uhuru Kenyatta's stool.
To make his bid practical, the second in command has recruited seasoned and influential political players from all walks of life. With them on in his camp, chances are; his first presidential shot may hit the set target.
Running a presidential campaign needs heavy pockets. Though Samoei is 'loaded' man, he sure needs backups from internal and external sources. Former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama is among those alleged to finance Ruto's presidential campaign.
Muthama is well established businessman and before decamping Wiper Party to Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA), he financed Kalonzo's party.
Once a financier always a financier, with deep pockets, Johnstone who has turned out to be the strongest defender and believer of William will verily do anything within his reach to catapult Ruto to echelons of power.
