How Rigathi Gachagua Will Easily Make Ruto The Fifth President of Kenya (OPINION)

Deputy president William Ruto made a wise decision to pick Mathira member of Parliament Hon Rigathi Gachagua as his running mate in the coming general election.

Rigathi Gachagua was a close ally of the second president Hon Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi and Personal Assistant of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

He also comes from a region with a very large number of votes. He's likely to deliver majority of votes to Kenya Kwanza hence increasing possibility of William Ruto emerging a winner.

He's excessively rich and financing Kenya Kwanza campaigns will not be a problem. He will team up with William Ruto and other partners to ensure that Kenya Kwanza wins majority of seats including presidential seat.

Kenya's politics is majorly determined by the number of votes that an individual brings to the table. Despite mount Kenya being Ruto's strong hold, it could have become a political suicide for William Ruto to pick running mate outside mount Kenya region, especially mount Kenya West.

Raila Odinga who has picked Martha Karua could easily penetrates the mountain if Ruto had picked Musalia, Kindiki or any other person.
