2 Political Blunders That Can Block Ruto From Clinching The Presidency

1.Picking a running mate from Mouth Kenya

This is a very populous region that has seen numerous candidates camp their in bid to win a lion's share of the votes.It is also a region that has produced three heads of states:making some citizens suggest that they should give a chance to other regions to lead.Picking a deputy from this region will spell doom for the DP as other regions will feel left out.It is uncontestable that our politics is tribal and people tend to feel much included when their own is on the big table.Having the current government being led by one from Central and another from the Right valley regions may spark some rebellion in the hustler nation if the same is to be repeated come 2022.

2.Forming a coalition

As we inch closer to 2022,numerous politicians from different regions are forming parties in bid to bargain for the interests of their people.The DP on his side has however held that he is not intending to form any coalition as he doesn't believed in tribal outfits.All he wants is for the different party leaders to fold their parties and join UDA.This can be fatal for him as some of his allies have been seen to reject such moves.

The likes of Moses Kuria have strongly opposed such terming joining UDA will give them reduced opportunity to bargain on behalf of their people.If this trend continues then the DP may end up losing many allies.This may force him to enter into a coalition agreement with such formations.The move will be to his own disadvantage as his followers will see him as a person who doesn't follow his own principles.That unlike now when he is advocating for national parties,he would have gone into a coalition with regional parties in bid to win the presidency.

What do you think of the above analysis?Do you think the DP can win 2022 general elections if one of the above happens? Kindly drop in your comments as you like share and follow this channel for more exclusive articles.
