The country is only 36 days away from a general election that will almost certainly be fought between Raila Odinga and William Ruto. The two have proven that they are the ones to beat in the upcoming general election, with neck-and-neck rankings. Ruto has been polling higher than Raila at times. However, Raila has caught up with Ruto, whom President Kenyatta has accused of neglecting his responsibilities.
For some time, President Kenyatta has had sharp disagreements with his deputy. They were not reading from the same script. Ruto has accused Uhuru of assuming his roles and delegating them to others. At the same time, Kenyatta stated that Ruto had resigned from his positions and had begun campaigning.
Local dailies reported yesterday that Ruto intends to prosecute Uhuru as soon as he assumes the presidency. However, Ruto has stated today that he has no such plans. According to reports, these exchanges are likely to benefit Odinga. This was revealed by experts in the Star Newspaper on Monday, July 4th. This should concern Ruto, who should choose his words carefully before the 36-day deadline.
