A self-styled Ukambani elder has lit up the internet with a passionate and hilarious endorsement of Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid.
In the viral video, the man who speaks in heavy Kamba accent and flanked by other grassroots leaders from six constituencies of Makueni County waxes lyrical about DP’s leadership credentials and his ‘man-of-the-people’ demeanor.
“Kiongosi kama atakuya kung’atuka kwa mamlaka, sote tumeunga mkono ndakitali Samoei Luto kusuti mwaka 2022 apate plesitenti Kenya..,” says the man.
(When Uhuru calls it a day, we’ve agreed we’ll all back Dr William Samoei Ruto for the presidency)
With passionate gestures only rivaled by dramatic preachers, the man hails Ruto’s credentials saying the Jubilee deputy party leader has been steadfast in supporting Uhuru’s Big Four Agenda of Manufacturing, Food security, Universal Healthcare and Affordable Housing.
He also hails DP’s inclination to uplift the living standards of the common mwananchi and urges Ukambani residents to rally behind DP Ruto in 2022.
The video has elicited mixed reactions with one of the commentators on social media terming the man ‘a reincarnation of Mulu Mutisya.
Mutisya was an Ukambani kingpin who served in both Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel Moi’s governments and was known for his staunch support for Moi and KANU.
Here’s the video that has set the internet abuzz:
