Ruto Hints At Two Candidates likely to be His Running Mate

With the clock running down to the much anticipated 2022 general elections, political temperatures have gradually continued to hit the peak as fresh details emerge on daily basis.

The contest between ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is likely to be decided by their choice of running mates.

Political pundits say that the two leading presidential contenders will rise or fall based on whom they settle on for the coveted number two slot.

The choice of a running mate will be a make or break decision for the two.

Raila and Ruto have compelling reasons for picking their running mates from Mt Kenya, which, for the first time since the return of multipartism, has no strong presidential contender.

DP Ruto has heavily invested his time and resources in keeping the vote-rich region under wraps for the past nine years, and has his eye fixed on the mountain for a running mate.

DP Ruto has hinted on two candidates who are most likely to be his running mate.

Ruto has hinted at either Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua or Kandara MP Alice Wahome as potential deputy.
