Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi is a devastated man after his house in Runda got burnt down. Police are yet to establish the cause of the fire.
This happened yesterday, just a few weeks after he made some serious remarks towards the DP Ruto.
According to political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi, Deputy President William Ruto’s chances of assuming the presidency are dependent on the death of his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The analyst elaborated on the theory, claiming that Ruto was considering a scenario in which he would be labelled as the designated survivor if the Head of State died.
Ngunyi brought up a previous tv interview by the DP at a government house in Karen, Nairobi, where he was questioned about why he didn’t attend Uhuru’s National Covid-19 Conference in September 2020.
“Let’s remember last year when Covid-19 struck, Ruto addressed the nation from a government house in Karen, he was asked by the media, as to why he wasn’t at State House when the President was addressing the nation on covid, Ruto responded by stating that the President and his Deputy cannot travel in the same equipment at any one time.
“What Ruto was saying without uttering the words is that he had contemplated a situation where he was the designated survivor. He was telling the country that should there be a scenario where Uhuru ceases to exist, he is next in line.
“This in my view is distasteful but indicative of where his mind is,” he stated.
Political Analyst Compares Ruto To Despots
He went on to compare the situation to that of former Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaoré and Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire.
In 1987, Compared became President after leading a coup against then-President Thomas Sankara, a presumed friend and close associate.
Mobutu, on the other hand, betrayed former Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba, who had initially appointed him as Secretary of State and Commander of the Armed Forces.
The news comes as Ruto and Uhuru’s tense relationship continues to deteriorate due to ideological differences.
