As 2022 draws closer different political players are aligning themselves in the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta. Political bigwigs are teaming up to form formidable alliances to use in 2022 general election.
One Kenya Alliance is already in existence and it brings together Amani National Congress partly leader Musalia Mudavadi, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and KANU national chairperson Gideon Moi.
There were claims that deputy president was planing to team up with Raila Odinga ahead of next year general election. However, on Thursday deputy president refuted claims of forming an alliance with former prime minister. Speaking in an interview with Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaika deputy president said Raila remain his most formidable opponent in next presidential contest.
Political risk analyst Dismas Mokua now says that Ruto is out to deflate Raila in his Western Kenya backyard after he (Ruto) revealed that he had held five meetings with Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya. Speaking to Star, Dismas Mokua said Ruto will easily be president is 2022 will be two-horse race
“Ruto is positioning the 2022 presidential race as a two horse-race so as to minimize the impact of Rutophobia and take advantage of Railaphobia. There is evidence to suggest that if voters are given the binary choice- Raila and Ruto -Ruto will exploit the Railaphobia and secure an overwhelming victory. However, a third force will give voters choices,” Mokua said.
