Eseli Simiyu Reveals the Approach DP Ruto Used to Pick Rigathi as Running Mate Instead of Kindiki

Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Samoei Ruto settled on Rigathi Gachagua as his running mate in preparation of the hotly contested presidential race between Raila Odinga and Ruto in the move to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking this morning during an interview with a local television station, Tongaren member of parliament Dr Eseli Simiyu has revealed that Kenya Kwanza used the bottom up approach to pick Rigathi Gachagua as Ruto's running mate despite Mt Kenya MPs voting for Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki.

Dr Eseli who is also Secretary general of Democratic Action Party (DAP-K) under the leadership of Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi have thrown their support to Raila-Karua ticket to clinch the victory of the 2022 August polls.

In conclusion, Kenya Kwanza is an alliance bringing together William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua who will square it out with Azimio la Umoja in the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta who will retire come August.
