Kenyans should get ready for another victory by President William Ruto in the 2027 polls, according to Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
Mudavadi predicted that Ruto will win the presidency once more in 2027 based on his meetings with the leader of the country since he first joined his cabinet.
As Kenya comes closer to 2027, he claimed that the Kenya Kwanza administration is implementing a complex plan that attempts to connect with important leaders throughout the nation.
He advised opposition leaders to feel free to affiliate with Kenya Kwanza.
On Friday, Mudavadi met representatives of the Western Council of Elders when he was giving a speech in Busia.
Busia Governor Paul Otuoma, MPs Geoffrey Mulanya (Independent) and Geoffrey Odanga (Matayos), 2022 Busia governor contender John Bunyasi, and a number of MCAs also attended the meeting.
It took place in Philip Masinde’s house, a former minister of labour, on the outskirts of Busia.
“My brothers, my elders, I want to tell you this, don’t be cheated. Ruto will not be the person to be defeated in 2027,” the former Sabatia MP said.
“So, we must adjust quickly. I want to be honest with you, let us adjust so that our strength, if it is 20 per cent or 30 per cent now, we want by 2027, as he (Ruto) wins, we want our strength to be 50 per cent.”
Addressing ODM leader Raila Odinga, Mudavadi said there was no reason for Western residents to continue supporting politicians who have never expressed an interest in supporting presidential candidates in the heavily populated electoral zone.
“If you want me to be strong in this government and you want your other brothers and sisters who are in this government to be strong, then you must help us because you cannot continue strengthening your neighbour at the expense of your own,” Mudavadi said.
His statement comes at a time when some Western politicians joined Raila in calling for massive rallies across the nation to denounce President Ruto’s administration, which Raila claims is unconstitutional.
