FORD Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula has once again shelved his ambition to vie for the presidency in 2022 and thrown his support behind Deputy President William Ruto’s bid.
Wetangula who called for an inclusive government backed referendum calls in the country.
The FORD Kenya leader argued that backing Ruto was the surest way of forming the next government.
“I have assured my supporters we will be in government in 2022. The sure way to do it is working with Ruto who will lead the assault for the top seat,” Wetang’ula said.
Moses Wetang’ula declared he would walk with DP William Ruto in the 2022 General Election after ditching National Super Alliance.
Ruto has been making frequent tours in the larger western Kenya in what is perceived as a tactic to penetrate the region deemed to be the Opposition’s stronghold and has won endorsement of some legislators from the rival coalition.
The Bungoma Senator fell out with National Super Alliance (NASA) 2017 presidential candidate and Opposition leader Raila Odinga after the controversial swearing in on Tuesday, January 30.
