Devolution and Planning CS Eugene Wamalwa Slams Deputy President William Ruto's Presidential Bid
Wamalwa claimed that just because Ruto was the deputy president did not mean that he would automatically take over as the Head of State.
The CS was addressing an audience from the Western Kenya community during the launch of the Western Jurists Sacco.
Wamalwa also echoed Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s views on how difficult it was to succeed for a presidential bid.
Kalonzo, during a delegation in Busia, claimed that he had been the republic's 10th Vice President and yet had not managed to scoop the presidential seat.
He also added that out of all the deputy presidents, only one, Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, managed to succeed the president.
Wamalwa also encouraged the Western Kenya people present that since they had given Kenya three deputy presidents, they were up to the task to give Kenya the next president.
He highlighted that the biggest challenge the Western Kenyan candidates faced in scooping the presidential position was lacking the required economic power.
The launch brought together political leaders from different parts of Western Kenya including ANC Party leader and NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi.
All the leaders present highlighted on the need for them as the face of Western Kenya to present a unified front if they wanted to scoop the presidency in 2022.
