Will President Ruto Betray His Deputy? Senator Onyonka Poses

Kisii Senator Richard Onyonka has said that President William Ruto might pick a different person to be his running mate come 2027 if the ongoing squabbles in the government persist beyond next year.

Senator Onyonka said that the ongoing wrangles in Kenya’s Kwanza government continue, a historical pattern that has always seen the relationship between a president and deputy president turn sour will reoccur.

According to Onyonka, this will see both Gachagua and Ruto part ways ahead of the 2027 polls.

“By next year if this war continues like this, Gachagua will be gone and William Ruto will be gone,” Onyonka said during an interview with a Kenyan TV station on Monday.

“The question then becomes does Gachagua or Ruto move to the west to go and pick a vice president and also what happens to that vice president after Ruto wins his second term. Will he also be betrayed?”

The remarks by Onyonka come in the wake of rumoured infighting in the Kenya Kwanza government.

Gachagua on Sunday however allayed the fears saying they are in good terms with the president and they are working towards delivering what they promised Kenyans.
