Deputy President William Ruto has finally indirectly answered the question on whether or not Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi will be in the August presidential poll.

Speaking in Kiambu County on Thursday, DP Ruto said the presidential race has been made easier by entry of ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula into the hustler nation fold.

Ruto noted that in 2017 elections, him and President Uhuru Kenyatta won without the support of the key Western leaders who have now backed his quest for the presidency.

He said with Mudavadi and Wetang’ula in his camp, it will be an early win for him on August 9.

“If we defeated Odinga when he had Mudavadi and Wetangula, it’s impossible for him now that my brothers have joined hands with us,” said Dr Ruto.

He said his opponents in the Opposition had failed to come up with an appealing agenda to counter his bottom-up economic model.

He asked Kenyans to reject Odinga who was only banking on the assistance of the “deep state” and billionaires out to protect their wealth at the expense of ordinary citizens.

“Their plan is to propel Odinga’s candidature using handouts,” said Dr Ruto.

The Deputy President was accompanied by MPs Githua Wamacukuru (Kabete), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), John Kiarie (Dagoretti South), Gathoni Wa Muchomba (Kiambu), Owen Baya (Kilifi North), George Koimburi (Juja), Charles Njagua (Starehe), former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and LSK President Nelson Havi.
