Tough Times for William Ruto and Raila Odinga Ahead of Their Alleged Alliance

The formation of One Kenya Alliance that is said to have left out William Ruto and Raila Odinga continues to draw a lot of debate in the country.

A number of political analysts view the new alliance as a possible way of bringing together William Ruto and his former boss Raila Amolo Odinga ahead of 2022 general elections.

However, the two leaders working together ahead of the 2022 general elections is not a big deal, the big deal is that who will suspend his ambitions in favor of the other.

According to the Article 148(8) of the Kenyan constitution, one is not allowed to serve as the deputy president for more than two terms.

This means that, William Ruto who is serving his second term as the second in command is blocked out of the same seat after 2022 general elections.

If the two leaders come together, it likely possible for Raila Odinga to support William Ruto for presidency since the constitution never limits him to do so.

Raila Odinga and his allies have severally mentioned that he only has one chance to run for presidency.

Nothing is impossible in politics, the two can work together since they had even worked in the past for a long time.
