Deputy President’s allies who have been going around with Ruto are likely to go broke after DP announced that he was slowing down his presidential bid. This comes after the head of state disheartened early 2022 campaigns.
According to a local newspaper, the politicians who have been accompanying DP William Ruto as team tanga tanga have been making a payout of the numerous tours across the country.

After the handshake between President Kenyatta and NASA Leader Raila Odinga, Ruto seems to have been cornered and betrayed as he looks to be president come 2022. Ruto has now slowed his trips and campaign trails which will cut off the killing by the allied MPs.
At the early stages of the handshake, DP Ruto was seen to be against it as he could often censure Raila for trying to reap where his effort was never planted. His stand against the handshake caused a strained relationship with president Kenyatta since he feared the politics started may in a way sideline his big four agenda.
MPs who have been on the trail with DP William Ruto include; Didmus Baraza (Kimilili), Ndindi Nyoro(Kiharu), Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu), Aisha Jumwa(Malindi) and Suleiman Dori (Msambweni). The MPs who could publicly start campaigning for DPs 2022 succession made him distance himself from the early politics.
However, DPs allies are expected to continue campaigning for his presidential bid even if the funding stops.
