Among the top politicians eyeing the presidential post in 2022, Deputy President William Ruto has given all signs that he will be on the ballot contrary to his rivals who are planning to form alliances in the bid to block him from clinching to power.
Ruto whose support is gaining momentum especially in Mount Kenya Region is anticipated that he will settle for his running mate from the vote-rich region.
This has also been reported owing to the massive support he is receiving from Tanga Tanga leaders, most of whom are Jubilee leaders from the area.
A report by the Nation alleged that Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Murang'a Senator Irungu Kang'ata and Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua among others are looking forward to be Ruto's running mate in 2022.
However according to Political Analyst Herman Manyora, Ruto will be forced to look for his running mate from Western Region in case Mount Kenya Region leaders ditch his camp for the Jubilee-ODM coalition that is in the making.
Through his You Tube Channel, Manyora alleges that Ruto will find a suitable leader in ODM deputy party leader and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who is serving his second term.
