Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party leader, Raila Odinga, who's a current close Ally is expected to compete with deputy president William Ruto in the coming general election, with Raila likely to get blessings from president Uhuru Kenyatta and Jubilee party in general.

Currently, deputy president William Ruto has got huge support from Riftvalley region and Mount Kenya and he's seen moving to other regions with the hope of gaining support in order to easily emerge a winner in the coming general election.

But Raila Odinga is likely to pick his running mate from Mount Kenya region in order to counter the rise of deputy president William Ruto in the region. He's also trying to revive BBI Bill in order to bring NASA leaders together.

Raila Odinga is likely to pick famous tycoon, Jimmy Wanjigi, who's also a member of ODM as his running mate. This will lowers divides mount Kenya votes in favor of ODM.

If BBI passes, then Wiper party leader Hon Kalonzo Musyoka might be given prime minister's post deputised by Mombasa Governor Hon Hassan Joho. Musalia Mudavadi seems not to be ready to join his NASA leaders as he has publicly announced that he'll also vie for the top seat.
