Nothing happens by coincidence in politics, it is said. Politicians are renowned for their ability to strategize, owing to their need to appeal to their listeners' psychological requirements.
According to famous political analyst Professor Herman Manyora, everything said, done, or pictured during a rally or political event must have a purpose.
On Thursday evening, concerns were raised when a portrait of Deputy President Dr William Ruto was spotted at one of his opponent's rallies.

According to anxious Kenyans on Twitter, the poster for the second in command was prominently displayed at Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka's Makueni rally.
Regardless of its underlying meaning, Kenyans believed the painting sent a warning message to his Azimio One Kenya leader Raila Odinga in the aftermath of the faction's running mate issue.
Earlier this year, Wiper leaders threatened to flee if Raila did not choose their party leader as running mate. Others joked that Kalonzo was secretly talking to DP Ruto.
However, the Wiper party's leader made a comment on the billboard before to the rally's start. According to him, Ruto's billboards would be prohibited in Ukambani since the UDA party leader did not have the Ukambani people's best interests at heart.
He highlighted that Eastern Kenya would be fantastic under Raila Odinga's presidency and him as vice president.
"Lengo na ndugu yangu Raila ni kuwashinda macompetitors wetu nikiungana na ndugu. Billboards hata hizi hazifai kukuwa hapa," Kalonzo said as he pointed to Ruto's billboards.
