3 Political Formations That Can Lock Out DP Ruto From Presidency

1.Raila Odinga endorsing Mudavadi

The former premier has for years now enjoyed massive support in different parts of the nation.Even without the voter rich Mount Kenya region,he has managed to always garner millions of votes that saw him emerge second.For a while it has been evident that most mount Kenya region do not prefer him for presidency.If at all he lowers his ambition and supports a candidate like Musalia Mudavadi deputized by a person from the Mountain,then the DP will have a run for his money as the ground will shift immensely.

2.Nasa principles and Martha Karua deputizes the flag bearer

This is one alliance that you can not take for granted.The NASA coalition principals still enjoy a massive support base in their strong holds.Them coming back together will mean that they bring to the table the five million plus votes they collectively garnered in 2017.To attract the voter rich mountain region,they ought to pick a candidate who is much accepted on the ground and can easily convince the masses.

In the recent few days,we have seen two great orators Martha Karua and Moses Kuria drumming for the Mount Kenya unity.It is factual that they will have a greater say in the Mount's politics.Having Karua back one of the NASA's principals as running mate will see over forty percent of the mountain's residents vote for that ticket in my opinion.This will mean political doom for William Ruto

3.Coalition of small parties

In the recent days,we have seen numerous leaders form parties that have strength in specific regions.Such parties as Chama Cha Kazi,Maendeleo Chap Chap,Tujijenge people's party,Narc Kenya,Upya Party among others can be such a strength in any polls.Such parties are the ones that constituted the Jubilee party which ended up forming the present day download.

If at all these parties join forces and field their candidates,then they will be the third strongest horse in the 2022 general elections.The reason I opine this is because most of these parties are formed by governors,MP's among others who are occasionally on the ground with the people.Their influence is immense hence can easily take the day in 2022.
