Kenya New Political Alliances and 2022 Politics

The election are nearing and all eyes are on the top seat for presidency. There has been running up and down for 2022 presidential candidate. This has attracted not one politician to run for the top seat.


of recent we have seen William Ruto continuing with his ideals about Hustler Narrative that is gaining momentum in the country. He has been trying to socialize with the low class.

He has been campaigning for UDA which is alligned to Jubilee party. He intend to use the party to steer his presidency. He has been championing for this and we expect alliance soon.

He has many options mostly from Mountain region and he needs to make the decision fast .


On the other hand we have Raila Odinga who is going to run in ODM ticket. He has been closely working with Uhuru as he intends to accumulate votes from the rich block.

He has plans and we are yet to see who is going to be his running mate as we speculate maybe, Ali Hassan Joho or the business man Jimmy Wanjigi.

Choosing Wanjigi might be his fit to jigsaw as he will gain votes from the Rich vote block of Mount Kenya. Also if he chooses him he needs to work with Joho to ensure maximum votes in Coast region.

Also we have Gideon Moi as his running mate could unlock the votes in Rift Valley region. This could be a big blow to Williams Ruto ambitions.


The alliance is the only one confirmed in Kenya. And we expect them to soon choose their presidential candidate whom will give competition to the two said Gentlemen.

The viable option here is Mudavadi as president and Kalonzo as his running mate. This also needs more mobilization to achieve the presidency. As both Raila and Ruto are more famous than the trio here.

Also Gideon as Running mate is another viable option and this is hard as there must be MOU to bind these parties together.
