Renown economist David Ndii has opened up on why he changed his mind and accepted a deal that saw him join DP 2022 presidential campaign team.
Ndii made the revelations in an interview with a local media station, revealing that he teamed up with DP Ruto as they share common interests.
“We have common grounds and the first is we have to defend our Constitution. The second common ground is that we must have a free and fair election come 2022.
“We have a very serious problem in this country and indeed it is a fundamental political problem, and that is electoral failure. And on those things, it does not matter what someone’s history is,” the economist stated.
He also clarified that his past criticism of DP Ruto does not change even after he has teamed up with the second in command.
“I explained very clearly that this is my idea of a roadmap which constitutes my engagements with, not just someone like Ruto. What I saw is a re-alignment. The first order of business, and we all have to agree on this, is to defend the Constitution and our democracy,” he added.
Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi, demeaning the economist, dismissed the move observing that Ndii has always “advised the team which loses”.
“Asking a liberal economist to write a Marxist strategy is like asking a dentist to do heart surgery. Total guess work,” Ngunyi opined.
