In Kenya's present geopolitical sphere, William Ruto is the most talked about politician thanks to his political manoeuvres. With 2022 presidential race in the offing, Ruto is among the presidential hopefuls who stand a chance of occupying the seat Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel Moi held decades ago.
Jomo has been epitomized as Kenya's founding father. He steered the country between 1963 and 1978 when curtains fell on him. After his death, Moi who by then was his vice took the wheel for a record of twenty four years.

There exists a unique parallelism between Jomo and Nyayo which is predictably finding a manifestation in William's political journey. In their political lifetime, the aforenamed Kenyan presidents never lost a single election.
Since there is nothing new under the sun, should Ruto win 2022 presidential race, then believe me you, his name will be mentioned alongside Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel Moi's.

The man from Sugoi joined elective politics in 1997 where he won his first parliamentary race against Reuben Chesire. Between then and 2013, Ruto served as Eldoret North MP. In 2013 and 2017, Samoei threw his gauntlets behind Uhuru Kenyatta and the result was; Victory in favour of Kenyatta II.

Before winning 2002 race, Mwai Kibaki had fired two unsuccessful presidential shots in 1992 and 1997. So, Kibaki lost before winning so did Uhuru whose first presidential stab in 2002 hit a dead end. Do you think William's first shot will hit the target in 2022?
