Nairobi Senator, Johnson Sakaja, has at long last declared who he will uphold for president between former Primer Minister Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto in the impending general elections
Talking yesterday, Sakaja reported that he is available to working with Deputy President William Ruto in the August polls.
This comes a month after city occupants requested that Senator Sakaja join William Rujto’s UDA party.
Sakaja, who is peering toward the Nairobi gubernatorial seat, said he believes the administration of Musalia Mudavadi and that he will work with any presidential wannabe and that the ANC party pioneer will forge ties with, including Ruto.
“I trust the leadership of Musalia Mudavad. If he sees it fit to team up with William Ruto or any other leader, I will go with him,” Sakaja said.
He radiated certainty that Mudavadi will settle on the ideal decision, saying he will uphold the ANC leader whether or not he will form coalition with other presidential front runners or will go it single-handedly.
“I am not a fair-weather friend, that I am supporting him only if he stands alone.
“Of course, that will be my ideal situation, but I will trust his judgment and choice,” Sakaja said.
His remarks come at a time when Ruto is piling pressure on Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart, Moses Wetangula, to join UDA.
