Wa Mwere gave numerous reasons why he will not vote for the deputy president in 2022. He said as a Kikuyu he doesn't owe Ruto anything and will not be compelled to vote for him. Wa Mwere said he will not vote for Ruto because in his view the DP doesn't believe in democracy, among other things Human rights activist and seasoned politician Koigi Wa Mwere has declared he will not support or vote for Deputy President William Ruto in 2022. Wa Mwere claimed Ruto is not qualified to become the next president of Kenya and provided several reasons why he believes that is the case. In a hard-hitting opinion piece seen by TUKO.co.ke on Monday, April 16, Wamwere cited lack of integrity and commitment to the democratic process, failure to end the graft menace, failure to eradicate negative ethnicity, and use of government projects to seek for votes as some of the reasons why he will not vote for the DP. " The next President must be an individual who is totally committed to the elimination of corruption and negative ethnicity. But from his history, Ruto is not a leader of integrity, and cannot be relied upon to develop Kenya by eradicating graft," Wa Mwere said. The activist posited the DP was not a patriot and therefore will not sacrifice his personal interests to save the country from dictatorship. "From my knowledge, Ruto is not a patriot or a nationalist capable of sacrificing his personal interests to save the country from any danger or tragedy such as dictatorship. For me, the only reason Ruto pursues leadership is for wealth and power. As a youth, Ruto never did anything to save Kenya from one-party dictatorship," Wa Mwere argued. Wa Mwere further argued Ruto has never fought for democracy and therefore will never protect it should he becomes president. "Despite public pronouncement, Ruto never fought for democracy and will not protect it as President. Philosophically, he does not believe in it. Instead, he believes in dictatorship and, therefore, fights to protect dictatorship as he did when he was in YK92. How can I, who has been a victim of dictatorship, vote for Ruto, who believes in tyranny?" he posed. Ruto is expected to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022 after he supported Uhuru both in 2013 and 2017. The Kalengji community overwhelming voted for Uhuru. Ruto is thus expecting the Mt Kenya community to return the favour. He will however need support from other parts of Kenya besides central and Rift Valley regions to become president. Though a section of leaders from the Mt Kenya region had vowed to rally behind the DP in 2022, others like Wa Mwere are of the view that the Kikuyu community will not automatically support Ruto just because he supported Uhuru.
