When he lost his bid to dethrone incumbent Mombasa governor Hassan Joho in the 2017 Mombasa gubernatorial race, Deputy President William Ruto was the first person to call and encourage him. And with Ruto keenly scheming a plan to water down Odinga's influence at the Coast, former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar could be a big asset in his camp.

"When I lost the election the first person to call me was William Samoei Ruto. " Omar is on record rationalizing his early detection to Ruto's Tangatanga wing of Jubilee party.

After dumping Odinga for Ruto, Kenyans and his insiders expected Omar to land a top government job but it didn't so happen making him end up languishing in political cold; increasing his miseries as an upcoming politician.

However, for those who might have written Omar's Political obituary they must be cautious as the former senator is turning to be a very close insider of the Dp. During his recent visit to the United Arabs Emirates, Dubai for his personal businesses and a family vacation, Hassan Omar is among the few politicians who accompanied the Dp.

Omar may currently be down but not out and it is a good moment for him to rightly groom himself for a political comeback in the 2022 general elections. Omar's super oratory skills, his charisma and workaholic character has earned him a soft spot in Ruto's heart and it will a political blunder for anyone to write him off.

He has turned out to be one of Ruto's strongest lieutenants in the Coast blaming Odinga for not bringing any substantial developments to the region despite supporting him for quite some time.

"Raila's 15 years firm grip on the Coast politics has not yielded any benefits to the residents and that is why the region should now turn to a new political ally, " Omar is on record making his stand.

Undoubtedly, with Ruto's insatiable appetite to sway the Coast away from ODM leader Raila Odinga, the Ex - Senator is a key tool in wrestling the former prime minister down.
