Opinion: Unsung Powerful Individuals In The Country That Can Help DP Ruto To Have An Easy Win Come 2022

Deputy President William Ruto is amongst the few leaders who have publicly declared their interests to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2022. Despite gaining massive support thanks to his "hustler nation" brigade, their is a special category of personnel in the country who can make Deputy President William Ruto's 2022 dream come true.

This is none other than second term governors whose fate past 2022 remains unkown since they cannot defend their seats thrice as per the constitution. Here are top second term governors whom Ruto can bank on to deliver for him the 2022 top seat;

Joshua Nanok

Joshua Nanok is the two term Governor of Turkana County. Though he was elected with an ODM ticket, Nanok has already ditched Raila Odinga for DP Ruto.

Nanok would be a very good pick for Deputy President William Ruto since Nanok is a well known figure in North Rift Valley as well as North Eastern Kenya thus would deliver these votes

Hassan Joho

Hassan Joho has been two term Governor of Mombasa County. Despite his close relationship with Raila Odinga, Joho might end up in the political cold I'd he does not play his political cards well.

A good deal by Deputy President William Ruto to Hassan Joho who is regarded as the Coast Region kingpin might see Ruto earn massive support from the Coast region

Mwangi Wa Iria

Mwangi Wa Iria is the two term Governor of Murang'a County. Mwangi Wa Iria is amongst the few Mount Kenya governor who retained his seat.

Mwangi Wa Iria can be a very good bet for Deputy President William Ruto since this might see a good section of Mount Kenya Region to rally behind him come 2022

Okoth Obado

Migori Governor Okoth Obado has been in tussle with his party leader Raila Odinga due to loyalty matters.

Governor Obado is evidently a Deputy President William Ruto ally thus a very good bet for Deputy President William Ruto bearing in mind that Governor Obado might bring with him votes from South Nyanza
