William Ruto The Master Tactician

Politics is always a numbers game, and you need to be a skilled strategist to acquire the numbers. In polls for 2022, Deputy President William Ruto is widely regarded as the front-runner. In all of the votes that have been conducted, he has managed to defeat former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. The second-in-command is regarded as a brilliant tactician. In the run-up to the 2017 national elections, his strength was going overboard, and the Jubilee party was banking on his tactics.

The second-in-command may organize more than four rallies in different counties while still having time to meet with his members and plan for the following day. Following President Kenyatta's handshake with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, the ruling Jubilee party split into two factions: those who supported the President and those who supported the Deputy President.

Following the handshake, there was a candidate for the 'handshake' team and another for the Deputy President and his team in the by-elections. For example, in Msambeni Constituency, an independent candidate with the support of the second in command forced the ODM Party to lick its wounds. Raila and other ODM heavyweights had gone to Msambweni to campaign, but the Deputy President just needed to pose for a photo with Feisal Boga.
