The Kenyan presidential race has attracted many aspirants from different parts of Kenya. Some are trying to unite ahead of the next year's polls. The tough race is likely to be among the three horses; Deputy Ruto, Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga and one member from One Kenya Alliance (OKA).
Deputy President have got high chances of inheriting the office of the President after Kenyatta's exit. But due to the following Mr Ruto might lose in the 2022 polls:
The DP Ruto is from Rift valley region. The people from from Rift Valley are going to be divided into two. Some of them are going to vote for One Kenya Alliance (OKA)which is also supported by their son Gideon Moi. This is going to reduce the number of votes he could have ganged in his homeland.
Mr Ruto had also been supported by some Mt Kenya politicians. Mt Kenya is known with large numbers of voters turn out. This area has attracted almost all the presidential aspirants. And with the support of President Kenyatta to Odinga, Mr Ruto is likely not to get the number of votes he might expect from Central Kenya.
