Cotu Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has said it will be hard for the Deputy President William Ruto to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking during a funds drive in aid of Evangelical Bible Church in Eldoret town, Atwoli said Ruto was facing numerous obstacles ahead of 2022 and prompted the DP to first look for absolution from former President Daniel Moi.
“If he doesn’t do that, then it will be very difficult for him to make it in 2022,” Atwoli said.
Atwoli said if Ruto does not meet Moi, he should shelve his ambition to take over from Uhuru.
“However hard you campaign across the country, you will not succeed because you have several hurdles including the fact that you must seek reconciliation with Moi,” the unionist said.
Ruto has in the past made several failed attempts to meet Moi at his Kabarak home.
The failure has mainly been blamed on political and/or other unknown differences between him and the Moi family.
