Miguna supports DP Ruto's early 2022 campaign, tells off Raila

"I don't support William Ruto, but it is extremely dishonest for Raila Odinga to keep yelling at Ruto to stop 2022 campaigns," Miguna said in a Twitter post seen by TUKO.co.ke on Monday, June 18.

The barrister argued ever Kenyan had a right to campaign and therefore it was not right for Raila to attack Ruto over his political activities.

Raila and his ODM party has not been happy with the deputy president's political activities across the country.

Senior ODM party officials and members including Suna East Member of Parliament claimed Ruto's premature 2022 campaigns put President Uhuru Kenyatta's development agenda at risk.

"Let me join many Kenyans in registering my shock! It appears that the official campaign period for 2022 presidential election has been declared by IEBC," Muhamed said June 11.

The backlash from the leading opposition party could have been triggered by Ruto's deliberate and persistent attempts to win over opposition politicians to back his 2022 presidential bid.

Ruto recently visited Kilifi County during which he pleaded with the coast politicians to abandon opposition and join the ruling party.

He managed to persuade ODM's Aisha Juma who publicly declared her support for the DP's 2022 agenda.

A number of other ODM allied politicians had also expressed their willingness to work with Ruto in 2022 despite stern warning from the party's leadership.

As was by TUKO.co.ke, ODM party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna threatened punish any party leader engaging in 2022 politics and especially those who openly campaign for Ruto.

“It is shocking indeed that some of those engaged in these premature campaigns for Ruto are members of the Party’s NEC who are expected to abide by its decisions," Sifuna said.
