Speaking during the burial of Kenya Engineering Workers Union official Fredrick Odindo, in Rageng’ni, Siaya County on Saturday, Atwoli said that Ruto has been frustrating the war against graft, which means he will not protect public resources if elected into power.

He reminded Kenyans not to elect him to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022, adding that they might regret the decision. 

Atwoli also said that he is ready to leave the country in case the second in command wins the race in 2022.

“I am ready to leave this country should he (DP Ruto) become the president of this country,” he said, as quoted by Daily Nation.

He also asked Director of Public Prosecution to summon Ruto over the Arror-Kimwarer multimillion saga before the completion of a probe into the matter.

Atwoli said that there is no way the DPP will crucify National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich following the crackdown on the scandal. 

Atwoli has been opposed to the leadership of Ruto. He believes he is going nowhere as far as the Presidency is concerned.
