Kenya's succession politics continue to take new twist and form as all political leaders across the board are seemingly in last minute push to identify suitable political vessels and presidential contenders of their choice.
Deputy President William Samoei Ruto and ODM party leader Raila Amolo Odinga have emerged as the two strongest front-runners as far as August Ninth presidential contest is concerned.Tbey have equally emerged the fiercest archrival with each persistently firing salvo and trading barbs at the other.
It was just last weekend when Ruto accused Raila of masterminding the chaos that rocked his rally at Jacaranda Grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi.The Deputy President accused Raila and his ODM party of being behind all the chaos that have rocked his previous Countrywide political meetings.
But in response Ruto's allegations,Raila is now claiming that the Deputy President has sensed defeat a move that is seeing him resorting to orthodox means of averting the situation.
He explained that Ruto orchestrated his own woes to eventually smear mud on him and his ODM party in the face of Kenyan voters.With the war of words between Raila and Ruto escalating day by day,Kenyans are really worried about the kind of scenario that awaits Kenya come August this year.
The two leaders being the leading presidential contenders,should be in the forefront by embracing and advocating for peace and tolerance among Kenyans and political leaders.Should these barb trading continue to ensue,the country may plunge into a very filthy situation after August polls.
