Why Uhuru's Endorsement of Mudavadi or Kalonzo, Will Give Ruto an Easy Win - Opinion

There has been speculation that President Uhuru, and his men whom we don't really know who they are have been pushing for ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi to take over in 2022 after Uhuru's term comes to an end. Musalia is reportedly being lined up with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka or Gideon Moi the son of second President of Kenya.

To be honest, this line up looks like a joke because none of the above leaders have the mighty national appeal that DP William Ruto and his main rival Raila Odinga enjoy around the country.

Musalia usually gets about 600,000 votes when he vies for elections, Kalonzo about the same numbers while Gideon Moi has never proved himself beyond his Baringo county, this leaves us with Ruto and Raila who both can claim to be the top horses in 2022 race.

Firstly, Raila has been losing his support ever since he joined the government through the handshake. His support only now remains strong in Nyanza, in Ukambani he can't get votes because Ruto is making inroads there, same to Mount Kenya and Coast region. In Western Kenya Luyhas are tired of Raila while in Rift Valley he will be lucky to get even 2 percent of the votes.

Now when it comes to Ruto it is a very different story. Unlike Raila, Ruto started early campaigns that have really marketed his hustler movement especially to all the poor Kenyans who are the main voters. In Rift Valley he has almost all the votes, in Mount Kenya he has almost 70% of the Gema community, the same in Nairobi, Coast, Western and even in Ukambani where we expect his UDA candidate to win the Machakos senatorial seat.

President Uhuru is an outgoing President and is very unpopular to Kenyans due to his legacy which many Kenyans agree is not the best in history. He therefore can't endorse anyone to win because he can't convince anyone when he has failed to deliver on his mandate and so whoever Uhuru endorses will fail terribly and this will give chief hustler Ruto an easy win in 2022 general elections.
