With 2022 nearing political leaders are now going out to consolidate support in their regions even with the covid restrictions, and the deputy president William Ruto have not been left out. It has emerged that the deputy president is set out to woo those leaders who were influential in the late Moi's regime to ensure that the influence of his son Gidion Moi is controlled in the rift Valley regions.
This comes after questions have been emerging as to who is more influential than the other in the region between Ruto and Moi. This move by Ruto is meant to leave Gideon Moi with as little support as possible ahead of 2022 since both leaders are eyeing the top seat and would want complete support from their stronghold.
This is also likely to dealt a blow to one kenya alliance since the coalition is banking on Moi to bring the rift Valley votes to their side, something that may not be possible if Ruto succeed in ascerting his influence in the region by bringing all these leaders to his side.
This move by Ruto to organize and rally his backyard behind him will surely pay off since these leaders have political expertise that when tapped correctly can change his political trajectory very positively.
