Deputy president William Ruto is keen to make his first stab at the presidency in August 2022 when over 20 million kenyans will be going to the ballot.
Since his fallout with the president, Ruto has been crisscrossing the country in a bid to market his hustler nation and his new party UDA.
All along, the president has been only showing indications that he may Support the ODM leader Raila Odinga following the handshake they did in 2018.
However, today, Uhuru has come out openly to drum up Support for the ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Without mentioning names, Uhuru openly advised young men to reduce their speed adding that an old man will go slowly but overtake them.
"Youths, don't rush. Don't come with speed.. speed will lead to your downfall. You'd rather come slowly but reach your goal." He said as quoted by the star.
Speaking on Wednesday after conferring city status to Nakuru, He said that leadership isn't a sprint but it's a marathon.
He warned kenyans against being deceived that old men need not to be elected adding that leadership isn't football to be played in the field.
"If you are told that a certain person is too old and a young leader is needed, think for yourself. Leadership is not football to be played in the field. It's a marathon, not a sprint." He said.
This is a clear indication that Uhuru may not retire quietly like his predecessor Mwai Kibaki who never endorsed anyone after his tenure in 2013.
A number for Ruto allies have been advising the president to steer clear from succession politics but it now seems like they will be in for a rude shock.
