Anne Waiguru Speaks on President Uhuru's Choice for a Successor in 2022

President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to finally bow out from office in 2022 after serving his second term in office with competition intensifying on who will succeed him when he leaves the stage in the next few months.

Many kenyans expect deputy president William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga to be the frontrunners with the later expected to get the endorsement of president Uhuru Kenyatta after the March 2018 handshake agreement.

And now, Kirinyaga County governor Anne Waiguru has come out to finally speak out on what she thinks president Uhuru Kenyatta is planning to do as far as his choice for a successor is concerned.

According to Anne Waiguru, the head of state will not announce deputy president William Ruto or ODM party leader Raila Odinga as his successor and instead, he will keep his cards close to his chest and allow the two to battle it out.

"I personally think that the president will not be outright on who he would prefer to be his successor," she said.
