Opinion: Ruto Will Use This Party in 2022 General Elections; It Is Not UDA

Days are moving pretty fast and the country is nearing the August 2022 elections. The deputy president, William Ruto has clearly shown his intentions to succeed his boss. He had made several development tours across the country, even to an extent of launching incomplete projects, before the president stopped him. The duo was really intact in their first term before things went sideways after their reelection in the highly 2017 general elections. Due to the heated political unrest, president Uhuru opted to have a handshake in March 2018 with his then-rival and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Since the handshake, Ruto has clearly seen that his boss will not support his presidential bid as he had promised in the famous "zangu kumi na za Ruto kumi" narrative. The deputy president has considered moving across the country popularizing his hustler movement in a bid to lure Kenyans to support and vote for him come 2022. He has opted to use burials and church gatherings to meet Kenyans after the president banned political rallies due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He has however been condemned for issuing wheelbarrows to the youths whom he had initially promised dignified jobs in their 2013 and 2017 campaigns. His latest critic and opponent from his Rift Valley backyard is Buzeki who has recently had a meeting with Raila Odinga. Buzeki opted to quit Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) after the party leader, Isaac Ruto, joined Ruto's camp.

Questions have been raised by political analysts on the party William Ruto will use in the forthcoming general elections. Many have said that he is likely to use the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) but I tend to think otherwise. DPs camp still has a headache of picking a favourable running mate. His running mate is likely to come from the Mt. Kenya region as it is considered a vote-rich region. Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and leader of the Service Party of Kenya (SPK) party has been fronted as the likely running mate. Kiunjiri launched his party days after he was sacked by the president. This presents the formation of another Jubilee-like coalition. In 2013, Jubilee was formed when TNA and URP amalgamated. This Jubilee-like coalition between UDA and SPK is likely to be used. It is a matter of time before we get to know the name that will be used.

What are your thoughts on this? Does Ruto have what it takes to be the next president?
