Possible Uhuru Kenyatta's Successor in 2022

As Kenyans awaits to vote for their next president, They still don't know who will be their next president. Currently, BBI has passed successfully through the parliament and it is expected to be presented to the public also for voting. If this document wins, there will a position of a prime minister in Kenya.

Though Raila Odinga has not declared on public his interest in the top seat, there is high probability of him being in the ballot come 2022. The handshake between him and Uhuru Kenyatta calmed the political temperatures of 2017 where the elections were said to have had some irregularities.

Raila's relationship with the president may help him secure the top seat if the handshake continues without disruptions until 2022. As Kenyans go to the ballot, there two main competitors for the presidential position. The deputy president William Ruto and former Prime minister Raila odinga. Since now the relationship between William Ruto and the president is not good, probably Raila Odinga will be endorsed by the president.

Though Ruto claims to have a good number of members of parliament supporting him, this number won't exceed the members of parliament supporting Raila Odinga and those supporting Uhuru Kenyatta together. At the end of the day, Raila Odinga will win the election.
