As the anticipated 2022 general elections get close, various politicians have been on the look for running mates who will help them succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta after his retirement. This has been met with a lot of difficulties with presidential aspirants not getting the right running mates. None of the politicians had shown interest in having a female running mate of their side.
Kirinyaga governor Ann Waiguru took it to the media to advise presidential aspirants to consider having female running mates as this will increase their chances of winning in 2022. This is the first time that a female running mate was mentioned after the politicians did not show interest in them.
The potential running mates have however not shown any interest in gunning for presidency. For instance, NARC Kenya leader revealed that she will vie for gubernatorial seat in Kirinyaga county after Waiguru's terms ends. Kitui governor, Charity Ngilu, on the other hand did not clarify whether she'll be in the ballot or not. With potential female politicians giving up presidential ambitions, the various presidential aspirants have remained silent on having female running mates.
