Have you wondered what the deep state means? Well, this are high profile Kenyans who run the government behind the scenes and are media shy.
A notable one is Nancy Gitau who has been behind President Uhuru Kenyatta’s back for his two terms. On Thursday 12th November, Oscar Sudi has cried out that Nancy Gitau is responsible for the revival of Deputy President William Ruto’s ICC case so as to curtail Ruto from running in the 2022 presidential elections
Well, this means that Nancy Gitau is so powerful and influential so as to be pointed by this strong allegations.
Mike Sonko has also time and again faulted Nancy Gitau and PS Karanja Kibicho as the two people behind his gubernatorial tribulations and the one’s who have made Nairobi a metropolitan area. Nancy Gitau was a senior presidential advisor whereby in 2017, she was transferred by President Uhuru to be the head of Uhuru’s re-election campaign think-tank.
Before all this, Nancy Gitau was the director of political parties in retired President Mwai Kibaki regime. Ms Nancy has been very vital more so in taming Deputy President William Ruto as she has been time and again been blamed for the division in Jubilee.
That Ms Gitau never sees eye to eye with Deputy President is well documented. It is also common knowledge that Ms Gitau enjoys special ties with the Kenyattas, with this pointed out by some as the source of her power
