With 2022 campaigns hotting up, pundits and political observers have declared that it is a two horse race, and that Dp William Ruto is the man to beat come election time.
Former CJ Willy Mutunga has wadded into the debate and gave his opinion, noting that if elections were held today, Dp Ruto will beat Raila Odinga.
Speaking in an interview with the Standard, Mutunga said that Ruto has mastered his Hustler Nation narrative with many unable to counter it.
“I have done my own investigation people are getting to accept that it will be a race between William Ruto and Raila Odinga. As of now, William Ruto will beat Raila,” former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said in an interview with the Standard.
“The 2022 election is a foregone conclusion.” continued Mutua.
The former CJ argued that Raila will not vee able to mount another wave similar to the one that the Rainbow Coalition (Narc) rode on in 2002 which made Kibaki the president.
“That Hustler Nation wave and forget the polls… he has captured the imagination of a lot of people.”
“My maid debates me on the Hustler Narrative and she is Luhyia.”
“So it has caught on like ethnicity and religion.”
“The problem is that those on the other side are not countering the narrative except for Raila Odinga who is asking Ruto where he got his money.”
Mutunga’s sentiments come at a time when Raila is making inroads in Mt. Kenya region, a voting block that will be a huge determining factor come 2022.
