According to the city lawyer, as much as Deputy President William Ruto is by far in regard to the 2022 presidential race, Raila stands a better chance of winning citing the Jubilee resources that are available for Raila’s use in his presidential campaigns.
The vocal lawyer, a fierce critic of the former Prime Minister warned the UDA camp against viewing the gap between Ruto and Raila as a chance to relax but to keep soldiering on.
“I refuse to subscribe to the notion advanced by some in Deputy President William Ruto’s camp that just because the gap btw Ruto’s estimated votes and that of Raila is about 3million the task facing Raila is hopeless! With the resources of my beloved Jubilee at his disposal Raila has a fighting chance!” he said in a Tweet.
Earlier on, Ahmednassir alias ‘the Grand Muller’ had sensationally claimed that the former Premier is no longer the potent political force he was prior to the handshake.
He opined that the truce between ODM leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta through the March 2018 Handshake has weakened Raila’s political dominance.
Raila is not the potent political force he was prior to the handshake. The handshake damaged him a lot he became a poodle and a stooge,” he said in a TV interview.
On Friday, December 10, the opposition chief officially declared that he will be on the ballot in the 2022 General Election setting the stage for a bruising battle between him and Deputy President William Ruto.
The two political foes are considered to be the presidential frontrunners in next year’s General Election.
