Ruto isn’t vouching for Eugene because he likes him, but this is a feasibility pilot study as to whether the 2022 experiment is viable.
The DP wants to see whether TNA voters will listen to Uhuru for a smaller thing like Governor for Nairobi? And if they cant, can Ruto trust the 2022 empty promise?
How Eugene’s Gubernatorial quest for the Jubilee ticket is treated will be key to how Ruto views this whole 2022 lie. But my take is that shouting Eugene is all about getting him to the ballot, divide the Western Kenya(Luo/Luhya) vote, between Kidero and Eugene, as Dennis Waweru(next Gov for Nairobi-definitely) squeaks through them, using the Waititu voting block. Its exactly what was done with Musalia Mudavadi in 2013, albeit this time, its just within Nairobi. Same script different cast(Whitney Houston)
