If Raila Is Out Of Political Landmark, DP Ruto Will Take Holiday And Only Come For Swearing, Opinion

It is absurd, yet a simple reality that 'knocks the door' as a likely happening. Have you ever considered the very fact that if Raila doesn't announce his candidacy or better still, choose to stay away from 2022 general elections, it will be a 'majestic walk or a ride in the park' for William Ruto when it comes for presidency.

It is simple mathematics, commanding political figures of the upcoming general elections besides Odinga and William, have no strategic driving force to marshall enough votes to defeat, say the DP even if they are all combined, but with inclusion of 'baba', it calls for a different approach towards the presidency

Talks of opinion polls put the second in command and the former premier being first and second respectively in the race as compared to other candidates. On the other hand, it will be more feasible and easier for the deputy president to clinch the presidency if 'Raila factor' is not in the 'game of cards' or just politics.

If it is announced that the second prime minister in the country will not be in the ballot next year, then, the first deputy president under the new constitution shall enjoy the benefits of 'riding freely' without 'encumbrances on the way' all the way to Harambee House and State House without much of a 'mountain of work.'

In any case, let us view things in broad perspectives, I haven't necessarily picked on Odinga as the only person or maybe say am biased, but it is just an observation of events, it can also be Samoei Ruto, what can you say if it is either way? Say former Eldoret North MP out of the race, will Raila have an easy walk towards the presidential special home?

What other factors can make the four-time running candidate stop now?
