A Jubilee Member of Parliament has hinted that President Uhuru Kenyatta may abandon his deputy William Ruto ahead of the next election.

Maina Kamanda (Nominated), acccused Ruto of being 'disloyal' to his boss by starting 2022 campaigns even before Uhuru has completed one year after he was sworn-in to serve his second and last term in office.

In an interview with a vernacular radio, Kamanda said although the DP had not been campaigning personally, he has mobilised a group of MPs and Senators who have been doing so on his behalf.

"He (Ruto) is always accompanied by politicians who whenever they open their mouths they talk of Ruto becoming president as if the election is tomorrow yet we just had one last year," he said on Tuesday while at Inooro FM's studios.

The former Starehe MP said Uhuru, despite having pledged to back Ruto's bid, may change his mind if the much politicking threaten the Big Four and war on corruption, the pillars on which he is building his legacy.

The veteran politician reminded Ruto that it is through loyalty that retired President Daniel Moi managed to succeed Mzee Jomo Kenyatta who protected him when he was almost blocked through the famous 'Change the Constitution Movement'.

"You don't need those politicians around you to speak for you. Stop early campaigns and be loyal to your boss...support him in building his legacy," he said.

The MP added: "Uhuru's blessings will make you president and not Maina Kamanda or the young politicians yelling your name all over.
