As the politics of succession intensify, a number of candidates seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta are aggressively gaining support in order to lay the groundwork for the much-anticipated presidential race in 2022.
Politicians are frantically traversing the country in search of votes with the general election less than 43 days away. President Kenyatta now completely supports Raila's position, contrary to what DP Ruto had promised.
Meru's governor, Kiraitu Murungi, has since spoken on the 2022 presidential race. Kenya has been dominated by the Kikuyu and Kalenjin since independence, but the governor believes it is time for other ethnicities to take over.
The governor went on to suggest that other Kenyan communities should be given the opportunity to demonstrate their driving skills as well. Kiraitu has stated that Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja movement, should assume leadership at this time and has pledged to assist him in the Mt. Kenya region.
