Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said that God has chosen Deputy President William Ruto to be Kenya's 5th president.
Kuria said this is one of the reasons why no amount of intimidation will stop Ruto from succeeding President Kenyatta in 2022.
Kuria, who spoke in Meru County on Sunday, likened Ruto to the biblical David who was crowned as the King of Israel after killing Goliath with a stone.
“Going forward, let everyone chose whether they’re supporting David or Goliath..And I’m saying it isn’t William Ruto, it isn’t a movement. It’s a spirit. Ni roho ya Mungu mnapambana nayo,” said Kuria.
He further claimed that President Uhuru would not be the president today if he did not team up with Ruto in the 2013 and 2017 elections.
“I want to tell you before God. If it was not for William Samoei Ruto, Uhuru would not be president today. That one I can say without the fear of contradiction,” said Kuria.
He added: "Our win as Jubilee is credited to this man (Ruto) if it was just me and fellow drunkards who were left alone to campaign, we would not have won the polls.”
