'He Might be the 6th President' - Expert Speaks on Heavyweight Who Can Succeed Ruto

Days after the election of William Ruto as the fifth president of the Republic of Kenya, experts have already began opining on the kind of person who may takeover from Ruto when he exits power either in 2027 or 2032.

Though those close to Ruto say that Ruto will govern for ten years and passover the mantel to his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua, political analyst Professor Peter Kagwanja has a different take.

According to the analyst, Kenya's political environment is similar to that of the United States where senators and governors make presidents. For that reason, the analyst is often idea that the governor who makes Nairobi work is poised to be Kenya's sixth president.

Analyst Kagwanja is convinced that the current Nairobi governor Johnson Arthur Sakaja may be Kenya's sixth president looking at the way he is currently handling the problems facing the capital.

"Looking at him and what he is doing in dealing with Nairobi endemic especially the water and waste disposal sector, he is a man t watch," said Kagwanja.

"If Sakaja does hi work well, he might be Kenya's sixth of seventh president who is not a Kikuyu of Kalenjin. Whoever works Nairobi work is likely to be a National leader," he said.
