A bruising political battle is unfolding in the country as 4 presidential aspirants move across the country in a vote hunting mission. Deputy president William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga are considered the top contestants to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Uhuru, who is the chairman of Azimio One Kenya alliance is popularizing Raila's bid as he attacks his deputy Ruto.
However, political analyst Dancun Ojwang, who is also Dean of Law at African Nazarene University, alleges that President Uhuru is having a hard time campaigning for Raila. He claims that ever since Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua was named Ruto's running mate, he has counter attacked Uhuru in advancing his ideal in Azimio.
" Gachagua is a kingpin in the making for the people of the Mountain. No sooner was he unveiled than President Uhuru announced that he would not be joining Azimio on the campaign trail. He is the foremost person who answers Uhuru when he tries to decampaign DP." Ojwang said.
