Kutuny's Prediction on Ruto Presidency After BBI [VIDEO]

  • Deputy President William Ruto shares a light moment with Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny Twitter
  • Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny, in a video that has been doing rounds online, made his prediction on the outcome of the 2022 General Election.

    Kutuny, who was speaking to a public gathering in his native language, stated that he had correctly predicted that President Uhuru Kenyatta would win the 2013 election, but he (Kutuny) would lose in his constituency.

    In a video shared on Facebook on December 5, he further claimed that after the 2017 election, he had again correctly predicted that the president and ODM leader Raila Odinga would meet in order to resolve the political stalemate.

    The legislator foretold that in the near future, the country would undergo a constitutional change and that we would have a prime minister with two deputies and a president assisted by a deputy.

    "I am predicting that William Ruto will be the next president of Kenya and Alfred Mutua will be one of the deputy prime ministers," Kutuny stated in the recently shared video.

    The message caught many by surprise, especially because the MP has been one of the DP's harshest critics.

    Ruto and Kutuny have not seen eye-to-eye since the legislator was picked as the president’s political adviser after losing his parliamentary seat to Wesley Korir in 2013.

    The cold relationship between the two leaders persisted to the 2017 elections as the DP largely avoided campaigning for him despite being a Jubilee candidate.

    “I am asking the people of Cherangany to join me as we plan development activities for this area. Some of these leaders you have here go to Nairobi and when they are there, they are easily excited by other people. They are then given money and asked to cause trouble back at home, forgetting that they are doing so to the detriment of their people. I am asking you to forgive them,” the DP was quoted by Daily Nation on September 7, 2019, in reference to Kutuny. 

    The MP responded that "He (Ruto) has been going around claiming that he is going to ensure that I fail politically but what makes him think that there are no people in this country who are better than him and who can fill his position?

    "If he thinks he can teach me a political lesson then I will embarrass him politically. This is a man I know so well and it's just a matter of time before I put him where he belongs politically."
