U-turn? After Listening To The Ground, Another Ruto's Top Gun Makes a U-turn and Joins Azimio

The 2022 political race is already at its peak as the political contenders from all corners of the country Kenya are seen running up and down campaigning hunting votes for their various elective political positions as MCAs, MPs, Senators, Women Reps and Governors ahead of the polls.

The presidential race on the other hand is not left behind as many leaders have come out campaigning ready to inherit the presidency office from President Kenyatta who is set to retire in August upon the completion of his two-terms.

Among those leaders salivating for the top seat in the forthcoming presidency race, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader who is also the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Honorable Raila Amollo Odinga and his counterpart the Kenya Kwanza Alliance flag bearer Honorable William Samoei Ruto appear to be the top contenders.

This is due to the fact that they have made inroads for their political parties in many parts of the country Kenya making them more popular than other presidential candidates who are also eyeing for the top seat.

With only few weeks left to the next general elections, politicians are still seen shifting from one political wave to another especially from Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp to Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance and vice versa.

Today the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance and reaped big from its key opponent the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp.

According to the Star News, the former Member of Parliament for Eldoret North Constituency Honorable David Koros who had been a great supporter of Ruto's UDA party declared his support for Odinga's presidential bid.

This came just after a group of UDA grassroot leaders from the Northrift were reported to have joined Azimio.
