Since last week, the deputy president, Dr William Samoei Ruto has been campaigning heavily in the coastal region. Ruto as per the statistics, has been targeting youths' trust as they form a relatively larger percentage of the Kenyan population.
However, who knows, the fact remains that Kenyan politics are unpredictable as citizens are the ones to elect their leaders

Dr Ruto's bottom-up economic strategy or "the wheelbarrow economy" as some Kenyans call it has taken over the coastal region. For a long, Mombasa, Kilifi and Lamu have been labelled as Raila's backyards. However, the situation seems to be changing.
In today's campaigns, youths and particularly Changamwe bodaboda riders were hear chanting UDA slogan not to mention some were carrying a wheelbarrow a clear indication that indeed UDA's popularity was real along the Kenyan coast.
Since Mp Aisha Jumwa and Mohammed Ali abandoned ODM and joined UDA, the coastal region has witnessed major political changes.
Addressing youths in Changamwe, Ruto promised youths that his government, if by all means, he wins the 2022 general elections will consider creating more job opportunities.
"I will make sure I support all of you to rise financially. To me, the common mwananchi is my priority as opposed to amending the constitution as my friend Raila wanted," Ruto assured citizens.
Recently, Kenya has witnessed a strong political wave which by all means has halted economic growth. The majority of the leaders have concentrated more on campaigns than on delivering their services to the citizens.
The 2022 succession politics and campaigns are boiling and it is high time Kenyans should unit and live peacefully regardless of their political orientation.
