Political drumbeats have been getting louder and louder by the day since we are heading to the much awaited 2022 general elections.President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to hand over his instruments of power to the leader that will emerge victorious in the presidential race. 2022 will be a matter of do-or-die to most of the presidential aspirants as they have invested their resources in their bids.
Deputy President William Samoei Ruto in particular has been spending his weekend in the Coast region. Vocal leaders allied to his UDA faction have been accompanying him to various venues where he has been addressing the residents.
For a very long time, the region has been regarded as an ODM bloc but recently, things changed as some notable figures in the world of politics decamped to UDA.This should worry the entire ODM battalion.
Most people in this region do not vote for a party but rather for an individual.ODM should not just relax as they might be served with a rude shock.
The UDA leaders should not be underestimated because, who knows? maybe they can successful sell Ruto's agendas to the people.
It is the high time for ODM to go back to the drawing board or else it will lose terribly in the region.
