Politicians are currently in a tight corner as they prepare to fight and retain their seats in 2022. Every leader is seeking refuge to a camp that will guarantee them a chance of re-election. The presidential seat remains to be a cake up for grabs by the big boys.
Soy member of parliament, Caleb Kositany, has landed himself in trouble with Kenyans after his tweet celebrating Ruto for his high social media following. According to his statistics, Ruto tops with a high following of 5.4 million followed by the ODM party leader, Raila Odinga, who is at 4.5 million.
Kositany is one of the Ruto allies who have been claiming that the deputy president enjoys a big following across the country. The Tangatanga brigade has always remained positive that William Ruto will beat his competitors in 2022 polls and become the fifth president of the country, succeeding the incumbent president, Uhuru Kenyatta.
However, this post by Kositany has not been warmly received by a section of Kenyans who have told him that social media following does not translate to votes. Caleb has been told that there is no poll which takes place in the online platforms. Others have told him to celebrate now because things maybe tough in 2022.
Below are some of the reactions by Kenyans;
The 2022 election is slated to take place in August as the Constitution dictates. The formations and alliances that will emerge between now and then will be a huge determining factor on who will occupy the top seat.
