As the political temperatures get hotter in Kenya ahead of next year's general elections, presidential candidates have found themselves between a hard place and a rock to successfully settle on their running mates.
There has been rumours that to cling into presidency,they have to pick their deputies from Mt Kenya region who have a huge say during elections.
This has seen them camp in the region in a bid to win the mountain people so they can support them when time is ripe at the ballot next year.
However,it is evident that some of them have already settled on a specific county from the region where they hope to pick a running mate from.
Kirinyaga county is seemingly the hotspot where the next deputy president might sprout from following the latest happenings in politics countrywide.
This is after Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru declared her readiness to deputize the next president with both Musalia Mudavadi's party ANC and deputy president William Ruto's UDA being her possible targets.
As that was not enough, during Thursday's OKA meeting with Mt Kenya Foundation at Safari Park Mudavadi was heard praising Waiguru's opponent and former minister Martha Karua for her uniqueness in politics terming her as a solid lady.
This has raised alot of questions on whether he intends to settle for her as his deputy in the 2022 general elections.
Is Kirinyaga county becoming the hotspot to produce running mate for 2022 presidential aspirants?What's your take on this?
