Untill now we can not be so sure that The Deputy President William Ruto who seems to be the most popular Presidential Aspirant will clinch the top seat, We can not tell it that Hon. Dr.Mukhisa Kituyi Who recently declared his presidential ambition will become the next president.

It's also not clear whether in the newly formed Political will front Mudavadi, Wetangula, Gedion or Kalonzo as their presidential candidate.We can not also predict Raila's next move, whether he's or not in the race to succeed president Kenyatta.

As they say, a day in politics is a long time, we never know what a political formation the next day will bring. Recently, Hon Kalonzo Musyoka the Wiper Party Leader, Hon. Musalia Mudavadi ANC party Leader, KANU Chairman Gedion Moi and FORD KENYA'S The Bungoma county senator Hon. Moses Wetangula agreed to work together in 2022 and finally form the next Government.

However, considering their followings, the four alone cannot win the presidency whatsoever, Kenyans are used to voting in tribal and regional lines, the region's have got their kingpins who always give the directions.

The Deputy president William Ruto untill now, seems suited to replace his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta whose term is coming to an end in less that two years time, Ruto enjoys mass following from most part of the country, he heavily depends on His Rift alley Backyard's votes and those of Central Kenya where untill now he seems to be enjoying popularity.

Ruto's popularity However, should not be mistaken for votes since mostly we have seen Raila pooling crowds during campaigns but he ends up losing elections.

Ruto's strength in his bid for presidency will also depend on the candidate he chooses to be his running mate. As usual no region wants to be left out of the government, every region Supporting Ruto's bid would want their own to deputise him.

Ruto's Deputy should be someone influential who would bring enough votes as Ruto did to his boss in 2013&2017 Elections,this is where the task lies for Ruto's camp.

Finalizing on Ruto, we can not tell which leaders or regions will stand with Ruto untill 2022 elections, he would lose or gain more support as time goes by. This will also determine whether he will become the fifth president of the republic of Kenya.

The Orange Democratic Movement party led by The former prime minister Raila Odinga has already called on those who are interested in vying for presidency with it's ticket to apply, both The two deputy leader; Mombasa governor Alli Hassan Joho and Kakamega's Wycliffe Oparanya have declared their interests and have called on Raila to support them too. Raila maintains that he is still busy campaigning for BBI, He's still unpredictable

As usual Political formation will still come especially after the referendum, we never know which parties and individuals will come together to front a single candidate to run for the seat.

Jubilee may form a coalition with either ODM, KANU, ANC, WIPER PARTY or FORD KENYA or both. ODM can as well join forces with UDA and other parties, I mean anything can happen, untill then we can never predict the next president.
