Opinion: Could It Be That Kenyans Have Reached Maturity In Politics?

Kenyan 2022 polls are around the corner as the key political bigwigs are rotating in the nation selling their political agendas to win the souls of voters.

The race to State House seems to be very tight between the two horses, Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto. The two frontrunners who are warming up to receive the baton from President Kenyatta, at the moment seem to have equal share of votes in the Mountain regions as some section of leaders support Raila while others support Deputy Ruto.

Other presidential aspirants that have made their declaration for the 2022 race are: Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, KANU party leader Gideon Moi and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula.

Kenyans of late are showing high standards of maturity in politics that were not displayed before. The Deputy President Ruto was in Raila's backyard, 'Migori county' some few weeks ago. He was warmly welcomed by the residents of the Migori county including some political leaders of the region.

Of later, ODM party leader Mr Odinga is seen compaigning freely in the Central Kenya without any resistance from the residents or the Mountain regions leaders. Instead, Odinga is always escorted by the leaders from the region. Raila is always with Peter Kenneth the former Gatanga Member of Parliament, the Nakuru County Governor and other leaders whenever he visits Mount Kenya regions.

The former Prime Minister Mr Odinga on 16th October 2021 was also in Eldoret which is Deputy Ruto's backyard. Raila was welcomed by large masses of the Eldoret residents.

The above three scenarios, shows high standards of maturity of Kenyan politics that have never been experienced before. In the past election campaigns, it was not easy for politicians to campaign freely in their opponents backyards. Scina
