Ruto Still Gaining Political Ground As His Rivals Fail To Regroup

According to the latest national intelligence service report, the deputy president William Ruto is the most popular presidential candidate. He has a popularity of more than 56 percent. His main rival Raila Odinga is at about 33 percent. Ruto has mastered the art of convincing Kenyans in order to gain their support.

On the other hand his political enemies have failed to unite against him. Each candidate is pulling on his side, they have failed to reach a common ground. This issue is giving president Uhuru Kenyatta sleepless nights. This is because he does not want his deputy near statehouse after he retires in 2022.

Time is running out for both Raila Odinga and the OKA coalition principals. They have to unite having clearly stated that there main aim is to clinch the presidency. The people are losing trust on them as Ruto wins on his side. This is the case in Western Kenya were the Tanga Tanga brigade has penetrated deeply to the locals.

William Ruto has not announced his running mate and he is likely to pick him either in Mount Kenya region or Western Kenya. These two regions have the highest number of voters that is why politicians are concentrating on them.
