The Deputy President Dr William Ruto is so far the first politician who has publicly launched his compaign for the upcoming general elections. It is around 17 months that are still remaining to the elections, he is holding rallies across the country to mobilize voters that he is the most suitable candidate to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The DP is mostly touring other regions outside his own home in rift valley to seek for more popularity. He has specifically set a camp in the central region of the country where there's a largest number of voters. It is actually from the same region where he could probably appoint his running mate from. There's a good number of his closet allies names that have been mentioned to be the potential running mate to him as reported by the Standard. Let's look at some of the most mentioned names to deputise DP Ruto in 2022:
The Former Agriculture Minister who is also The Service Party leader, is the most probably candidate to the position as proposed by many political analysts. He is tipped to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta as the Mt Kenya region kingpin.
Prof Kithure Kindiki
Tharaka Nithi Senator Prof Kithure Kindiki is likely to be appointed as Ruto's running mate. He has been a close ally to him since 2013 when he was first elected to Senate. Kindiki is reported to be more popular from the central region and hence he could bring a massive votes to Ruto's basket in 2022.
The Gatundu South legislator is also among the most mentioned names to be a preferable running mate to Ruto. He is reported to have a huge support from his home area in Kiambu and the Mt Kenya region at large which could make him be considered fit for the position.
