It is in the public domain that DP Ruto started campaigns earlier than any other presidential candidate. A number of political analysts say that the move by Ruto has been his major undoing as he is now seen to be overtaken by his opponents who still sell fresh ideas. According to David Matsanga, Ruto is now cornered after moving throughout the country to sell his agenda and manifesto to Kenyans who now seem to be fed up with his promises.
In the other years, Ruto was campaigning alone and did not have any pressure to compete with anybody. With only 40 days left to the elections, Ruto is now cornered with the strength from his opponents who continue drop new promises every day.
Matsanga says that Ruto even appears to be losing his key allies that have been very important in his campaign trails. Matsanga wonders when was the last time Oscar Sudi and Caleb Kositany were seen in Ruto’s rallies drumming up support for him.
Matsanga says that it will be difficult for Ruto to beat Raila as his team’s energy cannot be compared to that of Raila.
