General elections in Kenya are conducted every five years. The next one will be done in 2022. Already those politicians who need to compete for the different positions are readying and strategizing on how to do campaigns. What several Kenyans are curious about is the presidential post now that President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta will be completing his two terms. If we go by the Constitution, he won't be running for the presidency. This is something that puts the contest to State House fascinating and competitive.
Deputy William Samoei Ruto has been moving in many areas of the country trying to entice people to help him win and succeed his Boss. Can he make it?
In 2017, the renowned International Media Aljazeera penned down an article about the Kenyan elections. The article indicated that always Kenya's presidential results are differentiated by ethnicity.
Yes, our country has areas with high populations. The 2019 census, shows the Kikuyu leading with 8,148,668 people. The Luhya follows with 6,823,842 and the Kalenjin 6,358,113.
In my perception, if DP Ruto garners total backing from these three communities then he will defeat his opponents.
