Former Machakos County Senator Johnson Muthama on Thursday 13 August 2020 assured Kenyans that Deputy President William Ruto was not alone and he has a lot of support.
With former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale and former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar on his side, Muthama made it clear that the DP was not an isolated man in government as Kenyans have been led to believe.
He stated that some people were bringing creating issues to divert Kenyan’s attention from the theft that is taking place in the country and bringing policies of 2022. He claimed that more other people were backing William Ruto.
He went on to challenge President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve the government and call for elections so that he can see how Kenyans were ready for a change.
He noted that the deep state narrative was a total bluff adding that such will not be used as a scheme to “fix” the next general elections which will be in 2022.
“Tutaonana huko. We will meet there. Na wale wanafikiri Ruto yuko pekee yake, he is not alone. I want to tell Kenyans that Ruto is not alone. It is not even the way it is being reported that he has been isolated and has been left alone. Not at all. Here we are and many others are there outside. Let Uhuru dissolve the government and call for elections and that is the time they will get to know how prepared Kenyans are for this country,” he said.

On Wednesday 12 August 2020, Deputy President William Ruto stated that some people in the ‘system’ were keen to make sure that he did not achieve his 2022 political ambitions by winning the Presidential seat
He, however, assured Kenyans that he was not moved by their threats and he had God and the people by his side.
Since he made the statement, many political leaders have weighed in on the issue with some such as Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho dismissing his claims as a talk for failures.
