The 2022 presidential election is likely to be a two horse race. Two outright leaders have established themselves as the liberators of the economy. Raila Odinga with his slogan 'Azimio La Ummoja' is gaining popularity. William Ruto and his hustler narrative is facing a downfall politically in areas such as Mount Kenya.
William Ruto ame up with his political slogan to rally the lower class against the rich. Those who are unprivileged economically make the majority in the country. They consist of nearly 90 percent of the population. Ruto together with his strategists cleverly applied this and they were successful.
Raila Odinga has changed the fortunes by coming up with a more uniting slogan. Raila's strategy is to make all the communities included in matters leadership. This has started resonating well with Kenyans. He has gained massive support especially from Mount Kenya region.
William Ruto who was the pace setter now is playing catch-up politics. He has closely been monitoring Raila Odinga's tracks. He seems to be applying them in his day to day political activities. This may work against him after divisions emerged in his UDA party.
