Kenya's general elections will be held in 2022 that is a year from now. What people are looking keenly is the presidential seat. President Uhuru Kenyatta's second term is almost coming to an end. Deputy President William Ruto initially was deemed to be President Uhuru's heir but things changed drastically. The recent wrangles in the ruling party clearly indicates that Uhuru might not settle the DP for the top seat in 2022.
In my view, even without any support there are some counties that the DP has mass followers. His hustler nation slogan has gained more support from many Kenyans. This counties might determine his dream to State House come true in 2022. They include, Nairobi, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kakamega, Meru, Machakos, Bungoma, Kajiado, Kisii, Nyamira, Uasin Gishu, Bomet, Kericho, Baringo and Samburu.
Ruto also has an advantage given that Central Region is unlikely to have a candidate for the top seat. He has already won the hearts of many people in Central.
