With 2022 beckoning, there is likelihood that Deputy president William Ruto and former prime Minister Raila Odinga will be the top two contenders.

This is as the vote-rich Mount Kenya region might not field a presidential candidate. 

With the two being the top aspirants looking to be the next president, there are some other candidates who have shown interest in the race to state house. 

Among them is Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka and Reuben Kigame who has been not been in the limelight as a politician but rather as a musician. 

With few months to the election, opinion polls have been conducted giving a clear indication of the most preferred aspirants. 

Now, apart from Raila and Ruto, a local radio station Hot 96 has asked Kenyans to vote on whether they would vote for Kigame. 

According to the polls online, 61% of the Kenyans have voted in favor of him, 21% have opposed his bid while 18.1% are undecided. 

The Gospel musician earlier this year announced that he will be in the 2022 presidential ballot, challenging Deputy President William Ruto, ODM chief Raila Odinga among others who are among politicians who have declared interest in the race.
