What Might Happen After Mudavadi's Sunday Declaration (Opinion)

Kenyans are now expecting to get their fifth president after President Kenyatta shall have retired in August upon his completion of the two-terms in presidency office.

Among those leaders who are warming up through campaigns to inherit the presidency power are: the ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, KANU party leader Gideon Moi, Wiper Democratic party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula, the Speaker of the National Assembly Justine Muturi, the ODM party leader Raila Amollo Odinga and Deputy President William Samoei Ruto.

From the above list of the 2022 political bigwigs, the former prime minister Raila Amollo Odinga and Deputy President William Samoei Ruto appear to be the horses for the forthcoming presidency race. This is due to the fact that the two frontrunners have made inroads for their political parties in almost all regions of the country Kenya.

This means that if elections were to be carried today, then the next president of Kenya would have been either Odinga or DP Ruto.

The OKA Coalition appeared to be the third force for the presidency race but according to the current situation, their deal seems to have gone sour. The OKA members have been seen conducting parallel meetings which indicates the disunity among them.

Honorable Wickliffe Musalia Mudavadi promised his supporters that his ANC party would soon give its final declaration concerning the forthcoming presidency race.

Supposing Musalia declares his support for DP Ruto, it is likely that Honorable Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and Gideon Moi might join Odinga's Azimio La Umoja.

On the other hand if he declares his support for Odinga, other OKA members are also likely to join him in backing Odinga. And if he declare that he will run alone for presidency, the other OKA members might again join Odinga.

What's your opinion on this?
