Opinion: Should DP Ruto support Raila's presidential bid?

For a very long time Raila has been vying for presidency but he has not been able to win the coveted seat every time he tries. The ODM chief being a little bit older and in his last days in politics, the DP should support Raila's presidential for DP to sanitise his name and be accepted by all the next time he runs for the top seat. The former Prime Minister is 76 years and DP Ruto is 55 years, in short William Ruto still has a lot of years ahead of him in matters politics. This move will make the DP to go back to the drawing board and be able to put his house in order so that he can be accepted across the board.

ODM chief Raila Odinga can only be president for 5 years after which he will hand over power to other political leaders who wants to be president. One of those people who can benefit from these power vacuum in 2027 will be William Samoei Ruto. As for now the DP should shelve his presidential ambitions and support Raila baba for the betterment of the nation.
