The race to State House is on as many political bigwigs have come out to inherit the presidency seat after Kenyatta's exit.
Other key politicians that are also salivating for the presidency seat are : Honorable Musalia Mudavadi of Amani National Congress party, Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper party, Gideon Moi of KANU party and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya party.
The tight race between Odinga and Deputy Ruto has been brought by the popularity that they both share in the Mount Kenya regions.
Among the four members of the OKA team, Honorable Kalonzo Musyoka might play a very important role of determining the next president between Odinga and Ruto.
The two OKA leaders from Western, Musalia and Wetangula will not have great impact despite their region having large number of voters. Western people are always not united when it comes to voting block. It's automatic that leaders like Raila and Ruto will get votes from Western.
Honorable Gideon Moi on the other side, in his region the Rift Valley, is dominated by the Deputy Ruto. That's why he won't have any great impact on the side he supports.
Mr Musyoka is the kingpin of the Ukambani. The person he will back between Odinga and Deputy Ruto, might enjoy the large number of votes from his region and become the 5th President of Kenya.
