Ruto is among the aspirants who have made their interest public, the others including ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Wiper counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka.
Nyamweya, however, says that the only man with the ability to stop Ruto is ODM leader Raila Odinga, but only if he manages to unite the others under him in an alliance.
“Ruto is no pushover in the 2022 elections. He has the money and has been campaigning day and night. While Raila is the most worthy opponent, a coalition like Nasa would be unstoppable,” he told the Star.
His observation was echoed by former Cabinet Minister Franklin Bett, who predicted the worst for the entire opposition team should they approach the elections individually, predicting that Ruto will decimate them.
“It is either they unite or suffer a humiliating defeat in the hands of Ruto,” said the former ODM National Elections Board Chair.
The ODM camp has already declared that it will be stopping at nothing in its bid to secure power in 2022, with Mudavadi and Kalonzo too vowing not to once again throw their weight behind Raila, whom they have both supported twice.
The former Prime Minister, however, is yet to declare whether or not he will be in the race, though his deputies Hassan Joho and Wycliffe Oparanya have declared their interest in the ODM ticket.
