Ruto not fit to be president, I will not vote for him - Koigi wa Wamwere

- Wamwere 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

- Wamwere said he will not vote for Ruto because the DP allegedly doesn't believe in democracy

- He cited failure to fight graft and negative ethnicity and lack of integrity as other reasons why Ruto will not receive his vote

Human rights activist and seasoned politician Koigi wa Wamwere has declared he will not support or vote for Deputy President William Ruto in 2022.

Wamwere 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 and negative ethnicity, and use of government projects to seek 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," Wamwere said.

The activist posited the DP is 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," Wamwere argued.

The activist further claimed Ruto has never fought for democracy and therefore will never protect it should he become 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.

Rift Valley, the DP's stronghold, overwhelmingly voted for Uhuru in both cases.

Ruto is thus expecting Uhuru's bastion, Mount Kenya region, to return the favour in 2022.

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 , others like Wamwere and Martha Karua are of the view that the Kikuyu community must not be made to feel .
