Car owners are advised to at least have a spare wheel in case one of the four gets a puncture, the spare will come in handy and the journey will continue.
The above analogy is popular among Kenyans who are advised to have plan B's to everything. The country is hurtling towards 2022 general elections and political hopefuls have jump started their engines ready for the splint.
Of those whose presence in presidential ring is expected to attract much attention is DP William Ruto. His journey to statehouse was incepted in 2006 but it was solidified in 2013 when he entered into a political pact with Jomo Kenyatta's son.
Though his embers to occupy the house on the hill are fast glowing, his enemies have watermarked him for destruction. Hitherto, he has sustained numerous bruises but through determination he is still breathing, politically that's.
What if his enemies subdue him? what will happen to him? As earlier said, it pays to have plan B and this Ruto predictably has. Its written nowhere that the man from Sugoi must be on the ballot come 2022, so? He may decide to try his shot when the ground is clear.
Assuming 2022 ground is hilly and coarse for him, what will he do? A rapid answer is to support a different candidate? Who? One they shares ideological belief with. Through his bottom-up economic strategy, Samoei has promised to recover Kenyan economic from a downward trajectory it is currently taking.
ANC party leader is also pledging to overturn economic tables should Kenyans propel him to statehouse. MaDvd was once a finance minister and he knows what to do and how to do it. The two have lately been hanging together and worth a note is that Musalia was among the top-tier leaders who graced June Ruto's wedding ceremony.
The duo have previously worked together in ODM and KANU and this makes it look possible of a future reunion. Theories have hitherto been revolving around the possibility of Mudavadi deputizing William in 2022 but things may turn around, besides its politics. You shoot when you are sure of hitting the target.
