The 2022 presidential contest has been reduced to a four-horse battle between Raila Odinga, William Ruto, George Wajackoya, and David Mwaure with less than 45 days till the general election. In an effort to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, all four candidates are actively promoting their platforms around the nation.
It is a season of defections for the Ruto and Raila camps, and this evening Deputy President William Ruto is the latest leader to suffer a setback as one of his lieutenants left the UDA and pledged his support for Azimio.
Sources claim that Hon. Philip Mpaayei, the current senator for Kajiado County, has left the UDA led by President Ruto and announced his support for Hon. Joseph Ole Lenku of the ODM party.
Senator Philip Mpaayei Tulianza Pamoja is from Nyumbani, according to Lenku's writing.
The decision taken today is a major setback for Dp Ruto, since recent data from Standard revealed that he had visited the Rift Valley more frequently than his main rival, Raila Odinga.
