Mutahi Ngunyi, the savvy political analyst known for his Tyranny of Numbers hypothesis, claims Deputy President William Ruto is headed for impeachment.

Ngunyi said DP Ruto’s political allies have recently been targeted by state instruments in a bid to send a message to the second in command that the president was “going for him”


The professor of political science in his weekly Fifth Estate weekly YouTube post said the recent arrest and frustrations meted on DP allies, latest being Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s impeachment by Senate was a pointer President Uhuru was out to politically annihilate his deputy.

“ It is very obvious, Uhuru is going for William Ruto,” he said.

Ngunyi said a crafty plot had been laid to ensure the deputy president was “taken out” out of the 2022 succession line.

“ The impeachment motion for William Ruto will happen,” says Ngunyi, adding the current MPs hob-hobnobbing with the second in command will abandon him at his hour of need.

The famed analyst further posits should the pro-Handshake MPs manage to impeach the DP, the Rift Valley might erupt in violence, a situation he says could see the DP’s revival of crimes against humanity case at The Hague.

Ngunyi’s position follow a recent exclusive interview with a local TV station where Ruto accused his political opponents of plotting to revive his case at the International Criminal Court, Hague to stop him from contesting in 2022.
