Possible UDA Running mate come 2022

The 2022 politics is shaping up just as many expected. The real contenders being Raila and Ruto. But the big question is where will the UDA pick their running mate.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, who has declared his presidential bid, is among key figures mentioned as possible running mates. Muturi, previously considered a key ally of the President, has been gravitating towards the DP.

Just recently he claimed Kenya Revenue Authority officials have been unleashed against him using fictitious tax demands among state intimidation tactics.

Other names floated for Ruto include former Agriculture CS and The Service Party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri, MPs Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira) and Moses Kuria (Gatundu South). 

However, Kiunjuri and Kuria lately distanced themselves from the DP and are championing Mt Kenya unity.

Outside Mount Kenya there are also potential candidates. We have Wycliffe Oparanya Kivutha Kibwana Musalia Mudavadi and also Kalonzo Musyoka.

The OKA is not going to withstand this politics and they cannot make it without Raila on board. So don't be surprised if one or two of them defect to UDA.
