It is only one year to the campaign period. Many people are now coming up showing interest in the presidential seat. At the moment political temperatures have really risen up. It all started with the deputy president moving around the country to try and win the hearts of Kenyans.
Although he has greatly been accused of starting early campaigns, its now clear that other leaders have also joined him in the campaigns. BBI has indeed contributed much in the current political temperatures in the country.
Among those that have already shown interest in the presidential seat are; Hon Joho, Hon Oparanya, deputy president William Ruto, Hon Mukhisa Kituyi and Hon Alfred Mutua. This are leaders who have shown interest and have declared publicly. Currently according to the huge rift between president Uhuru Kenyatta and Dp Ruto, it is clear that the two wont work together in 2022. Below is a list of three possible coalitions in 2022.
1. Deputy president Ruto, Hon Joho and Hon Oparanya.
Although at the moment the three leaders do not sail in the same ship, it is alleged that they might end up working together. Hon Joho and Oparanya are ODM leaders, since they have already declared interest in the top most seat, the two might decide to quit in case of dissatisfaction with ODM. And after the possible quitting from ODM the two might decide to work with the deputy president. Although this wont be much stronger coalition but somehow it will give other coalitions sleepless nights.
2. Hon. Mudavadi, Hon Kalonzo, Hon Gideon Moi and Hon Wetangula.
This seems to be somehow an upcoming strong coalition although it will take time for it to grow and be accepted. The four members have been seen recently working together, something that has left Kenyans guessing about their possible working together. The leaders in this group might be favoured since they have tried to have clean names on matters corruption.
3. Hon Mukhisa, Hon kivutha Kibwana and Hon Raila.
This is another possible coalition that is looming. Hon Mukhisa Kituyi has recently resigned from his lucrative job to come and push for his ambitions to vie for presidential seat. Noting that Mukhisa has been out of politics for long it is somehow right to guess that maybe he is a project or he must be supported by a strong person.
Hon Raila Odinga might not be vying again for the presidential post, and since he is very strong and popular he might decide to endorse Hon Mukhisa Kituyi. This has been alleged after the two met today after a long period. It is obvious that the two must have touched on political issues.
