"Ruto will not on the ballot, Joho will be," Atwoli

The COTU boss stirred the waters yesterday during a fundraiser in Lamu county where he declared that DP Ruto will not be on the ballot come 2022 and pronounced that Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho will be part of the government that will succeed President Kenyatta’s.

“I assure you that after the next elections, Governor Ali Hassan Joho will be part of the next government. In 2022 we shall elect the president in an election that will be very peaceful since we shall have amended the Constitution,” said Atwoli, who was addressing the public at a fundraiser in Lamu.

 “The name of William Samoei Ruto will not be there (on the ballot)… You can take it to the bank,” said Atwoli.
