The 2022 presidential elections are just around the corner with several candidates expressing interest in taking over from President Kenyatta when his term comes to an end in 2022. The likes of Deputy President William Ruto and Odm leader Raila Odinga have been viewed as the leading candidates in the race which also includes Anc leader Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka of the Wiper party. 

However, according to many political pundits, the 2022 Presidential Elections will be a two-horse race between Raila and Ruto. The two enigmas have already started their campaigns ahead of the polls. 

Earlier today the two leaders met for the first time in public after weeks of throwing digs at each other. Despite the well-known rivalry, Ruto and Raila left many Kenyans impressed after they took a moment to greet each other in a welcoming manner. 

Ruto arrived a few minutes after Raila had arrived. He greeted other leaders by nodding his head but he stopped after he reached where Baba was standing. He took time to shake Raila's hand and even patted him on the shoulder in a friendly manner. 

It's indeed important for leaders to put aside their differences and work together for the betterment of the country. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
