Generally, Kenyans love fighter who is ready to stand up and fight boldly against impunity in the country. Therefore according analysis, William Samoei Ruto seems to satisfy most of conditions needed for Presidency come 2022. Thus, check out below, the reasons why William Ruto is likely to become president in 2022 general elections.
1. Uhuru's Betrayal
2.Fall of BBI
Ruto gathered much fame when he was the only person who stood firm against BBI thereby going against Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga which are some of the most powerful politicians in the country. When BBI eventually failed, he emerged as the victor hence popularity.
3. Raila's supporters betrayal
When Raila and Uhuru Kenyatta had handshake, most of Raila's supporters felt betrayed hence becoming disgruntled. Therefore Ruto has a good opportunity to capitalise Raila's disgruntled supporters to become his.
4. Corruption Allegations
Ruto has turned war against corruption against Uhuru Kenyatta's government. This is adding him more support.
William Ruto has distance himself from government and high profile life and is seen most of the time helping the jobless youths 'hustlers' hence accumulating more support.
6. Not another Kikuyu
Since independence, Kenya has had four presidents three of them which came from Kikuyu community and only one coming from another community, Daniel Moi. Thus there is need to have another president from another community apart from Kikuyu community.
7. Close to church.
In many occasions, William Samoei Ruto have been seen attending church services and actively participating in church activities such as church harambees to help build the church. Thus Kenyans can easily trust such leaders.
8.Ruto started early
William Samoei Ruto started showing his ambitions of contesting for Presidency long time ago and he is still remaining with the stand. This gives him upper hand.
9. Jubilee is dying as UDA is fast growing.
Currently, UDA is the fastest growing political party in Kenya gaining popularity each day within the country. On the other hand, Jubilee is slowly coming down as some politicians leave the party to join UDA. This favors William Ruto.
10. Incumbency advantage.
Ruto has been working in one of the top seats in the government thus boasts privileges of incumbency. He knows how system works and may use the knowledge to get additional advantage.
Having said that, it is clear that Ruto can easily become president of Kenya come 2022. Meanwhile you can share and subscribe for more articles. Thank you.
