You can’t stop my bid, Ruto tells ‘deep state’


Aug. 11, 2020

In the face of mounting pressure against him and his allies, Deputy President William Ruto has declared he would defeat the ‘deep state’ out to ensure his political downfall.
Ruto said yesterday he would not bow to machinations by the ‘system’ that he claimed was determined to ensure he doesn’t succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022. The deputy president, who faces a combined onslaught by a faction in the ruling Jubilee Party allied to the president and the Opposition led by Raila Odinga, said together with Uhuru, they had triumphed over similar challenges in the run-up to 2013 polls when they had been indicted by the International Criminal Court. “I was being threatened. If I was a coward, we would not have formed this government. If Uhuru Kenyatta was a coward, we would not have formed a government because of the threats,” Ruto said.
