Irungu Kang'ata, a Murang'a County Senator, has hinted that Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe is planning to replace President Uhuru Kenyatta with Deputy President William Ruto.
Kang'ata, Ruto's point man in the region, said Murathe is just buying time, and he will soon make a surprising political move that will surprise his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
Murathe, he said, will soon join the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a party affiliated with Ruto.
“We anticipate David Murathe joining UDA. He is currently just waiting for the right moment to make the appropriate move.
“Many of you will be surprised, but that is how politics is played.
“Politics is not a game of trust, but it is a game of mutual benefit.”
Gathoni Wamuchomba, the Kiambu Woman Representative, and three other leaders from the Mount Kenya region joined the ‘Hustler Movement' a few days ago.
Kang'ata revealed that they expect a large number of regional leaders to join DP William Ruto on his unstoppable journey to the statehouse in 2022.
