It's on the public domain that William Ruto's team will in the next few months hit the campaign trail hard. Ruto is among the hopefuls who are eyeing to inherit Uhuru Kenyatta's stool.
To make his bid practical, the second in command has recruited seasoned and influential political players from all walks of life. With them on in his camp, chances are; his first presidential shot may hit the set target.
