William Ruto will vie for presidency in 2022 with Musalia Mudavadi as his running mate, Jubilee operatives have leaked.
Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri, has revealed that the newly formed Jubilee Party is doing all it can to bring Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, to the ruling coalition.
SpeakingÂ on WednesdayÂ in Bahati Constituency, the MP said that Jubilee is working day and night to convince Mudavadi to join their bandwagon ahead of the 2017 General Election.
The MP also revealed that Jubilee wants Mudavadi to be Deputy President William Ruto’s running mate in the 2022 General Elections because he will bring in the much needed Western bloc into Jubilee.
He also said the Jubilee Party believes Mudavadiâ€™s presence will avert any possible chaos and tension before and after the 2017 elections.
â€œWe want Mudavadi to be Ruto’s running mate in 2022 and want him to join Jubilee and I know our Principals are doing all they can to reach out to him,” the MP said.
The MP, who is also Uhuruâ€™s close confidante, said that the President and his Deputy are determined to win the Luhya vote and they can only do so by first winning Mudavadi.
â€œThe President and his deputy want Mudavadi to work with them because they also want the Luhya community to work with them,” he said.
