The Kenyan political matrix seems to be shaping up. This entails different politicians moving from one faction to another as they prepare and position themselves for 2022. This has ensured that the political temperature remains to be on the rise. Kenya is also set to have a new president in 2022 as President Uhuru Kenyatta's two terms will lapse in 2022.

Among the key leaders who are anticipated to join in the presidential race includes Deputy President William Ruto and former prime minister Raila Odinga who is yet to declare his interest for the top seat. However, Deputy President William Ruto seems to have gained an upper hand. This is following a move by Turkana two time governor Joshua Nanok to ditch Raila Odinga to join William Ruto's camp

He has been the Deputy vice chairperson for ODM, a party that is led by Raila. However; he has declared his move to join Ruto ahead of 2022. "I want to say that in the years back we have always been against the Jubilee regime in elections. But this time around, I want to tell you, Mr Deputy President, that we will be on your side come 2022," said ODM's Josphat Nanok
