There has been speculation that DP William Ruto could peak a female running mate from Mount Kenya area to boost his chances of getting massive votes from the vote rich region. The list consists of Martha Karua and Anne Waiguru who would in my opinion not add any value to Ruto's 2022 bid.
The right running mate for DP Ruto is a young professor by the name Kithure Kindiki. The 49 year old lawyer who is also the Tharaka Nithi senator comes from Meru region where there are two communities (Embu and Meru) who have always supported the Kikuyus in elections. I think that Ruto does not need a Kikuyu as his running mate because Kenyans from other regions would feel like they do not belong to his hustler nation politics.
Ruto instead needs Kindiki who is already a national leader having been involved in many debates in the senate. Kithure also happens to be clean in politics and that's what Ruto needs to avoid being associated with a corrupt leader as his running mate, considering that Ruto himself is regarded as a land grabber.
Do you think Kithure Kindiki is better suited to Deputise Ruto than both Waiguru and Karua? Comment below and follow my account for more news.
