As tensions continue to escalate within the ruling Jubilee party amid claims that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are headed for a bitter political split, one man may prove to be an asset in ending the feuding.
State House Comptroller and former Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua is a man who can play a mediator role in a bid to quell the tensions within the party which has of late seen politicians allied to Dr. Ruto dare the President to fire him.
With deep knowledge and experience in matters administration, the former governor may as well save the DP who has of late been under pressure from a section of politicians over his stand on matters corruption in the country.
Dr. Ruto can reach to Mbugua, who is said to have the President's ear, over 2022 politics.
Using his position as a link between State House and the country's political class, the former Administration Police commandant can also mediate the two factions within Jubilee.
Having served in the provincial administration during the 1990s in the Rift Valley, the ex-county boss has a wealthy understanding of the region's issues and can advise the President accordingly.
He also sits at a better place to understand the pros and cons of Ruto's presidency, as such Mbugua can be 'Mr Fix It' in the 2022 Jubilee political gameplan.
