Allegations Emerge of a Plan To Have Two Presidential Elections in 2022 And What This Will Mean For Ruto

With the 2022 general elections around the corner, it has now becoming clearer that President Uhuru might not support Ruto as he had promised in the run up to the 2013 elections.

This has been evidenced by the fact that some of Uhuru's key allies such as Muathe have been taking Ruto head on revealing that he will not succeed Uhuru come 2022.

Uhuru's strategists have also been claimed to be coming up with schemes to scuttle Ruto's 2022 presidential ambitions.

Details have today emerged of another plan by Uhuru's inner circles to have two presidential elections in 2022.

As established by the Saturday Nation today, it has emerged that Uhuru's key strategists are now racing against time to make sure that there is a run off in next year's presidential polls.

According to this new scheme, all the key political bigwigs such as Mudavadi, Raila and Kalonzo should take a stab at the presidency in 2022.

This they believe will make it impossible for Ruto to become president during the first round of the presidential race.

This will also force the country to conduct another Presidential race and this time, whoever would have emerged first between Raila, Kalonzo and Mudavadi will face off with Ruto.

This strategy is aimed at resolving the divisions that have been rocking the opposition camp with each of the opposition leaders hoping for Uhuru's endorsement.

It will also prevent Uhuru from being in a dilemma on who he should endorse ahead of the 2022 general elections.

Political analyst Herman Manyora has however warned that such a strategy by Uhuru might backfire in the event Ruto attains the 50 plus one vote in the first round hence would be declared the president elect.
