Emerging details now indicate that Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is among those eyeing the Deputy President position after the 2022 elections, after a successful role as Deputy President William Ruto's running mate in the awaited polls.

Kuria has been working closely with the DP, who has declared his interest in the seat, and has also been crisscrossing the Mt Kenya region trying to market himself as the next kingpin, after the retirement of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Star reports that Kuria, one of the critics of Uhuru, who, interestingly, is his constituent, is among the many Mt Kenya leaders eyeing being Ruto's deputy, a post also being sought by Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira)

Also in the race is Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki and TSP party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri, who, to most leaders and political pundits, is the most likely to be picked by the DP in the event that he finally decides to pick his running mate from Central Kenya.

"Kiunjuri brings about vast experience spanning over 25 years that few politicians have in Mt Kenya. His knack for the political language also sets him apart from the rest and in the coming days, we, the leadership of Mt Kenya," Laikipia Senator John Kinyua told the paper on Tuesday.

His remarks were echoed by political analyst Festus Irungu, who opines that Kiunjuri's acceptability makes him the best bet for the DP if he under wants to be voted in as the next Head of State.

The paper also reports that Kiunjuri's sudden activeness is in a bid to attract Ruto's attention while at the same time trying to rally the Mt Kenya region behind him as its next political spokesman.

He too has not been kind to Uhuru, and is also among those who have been attacking ODM leader Raila Odinga, Uhuru's current biggest political ally and Ruto's biggest political enemy.
