Political Commentator Alleges Why DP Gachagua May Not Succeed Ruto In 2027

Deputy Presidents are always perceived to be best placed to take over from their bosses.

In kenya, three out of five Presidents the nation had were vice Presidents before clinching the top seat.

The second President of Kenya Mzee Toroitich Daniel Arap Moi was Mzee Jomo Kenyatta’s Vice-President.

The third President of Kenya, Mzee Mwai Kibaki served as Daniel Moi's deputy.

And now William Ruto served as former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s deputy from 2013 to 2017.

Dr Ruto in 2022 succeeded his boss.

As at now it is perceived that Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua stands a chance to take over from Ruto, but this has been refuted by two political commentators.

The political analysts said Gachagua's chances of succeeding Ruto are minimal with the ongoing current political scenes in the country.

According to political analyst Benjamin Ndolo, Musalia Mudavadi is best placed to take over from President William Ruto.

He alleges his position gives him a top score in succeeding Ruto.

Ondolo said Kenyans are also seeing Ruto-Musalia interactions and affirmed that Musalia may pick after Ruto.

According to Ben, Ruto may not pass the mantle to Gachagua but may leave it to Mudavadi considering the fact the Western community have never tasted Presidency since independence.

He said that Musalia Mudavadi acts like President William Ruto’s principal assistant considering the roles he is currently assigned to by President William Ruto.
