Among these politicians is the former prime minister of Kenya, hon Raila Odinga who is expected to face the deputy president of Kenya Dr William Ruto on this race.

Now, let's look at this opinion on Raila Odinga's running mate that might give him an early win over Dp Ruto.

According to me, hon Justin Muturi, the current speaker of the national assembly will be the best person to deputize Mr Odinga. Mr Muturi is known to be a very famous Mount Kenya leader who was installed some few months ago as president Uhuru Kenyatta's successor in the Mount Kenya region.
