3. Uhuru Tours Ruto's Turf to Cement Legacy

The president has visited DP Ruto's turf even though they are not in good terms. This depicts that he will be welcomed by Gideon Moi who seem to have merged with Raila for the upcoming 2022 general elections. He is expected to launch a number of projects to cement his legacy as his final moments of his tenure encroach.

Here are some of the comments made netizens, "Rift Valley is home to everyone just like Luo Nyanza. President Uhuru has a right to visit anywhere, with or without Ruto. Anyway, we need tribal kingpins who will negotiate for our community. In Kisii, we have Matiang'i/Ongwae. Mr #GideonMoi must improve, he can't beat Ruto."
