The Daily Nation on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 reported that the Handshake team has agreed that the Deputy President position be reserved for Mt Kenya as the Presidency goes to ODM leader Raila Odinga, who hails from Nyanza.

Three potential candidates; Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, former MPs Peter Kenneth (Gatanga) and Martha Karua (Gichugu) were identified as Raila's possible running mates.

Political strategists Kiriku Kinyanjui and Silas Bogonko said Kinyanjui was not experienced enough to be a DP, adding the rest were qualified for the post.

However, they both agreed that Kenneth was the "ideal" running mate for Raila unlike Karua who they described as "Perennial opposer".

"Raila's running mate should be a complementary partner and not a perennial opposer. The DP should be humble, polite and influential in development issues. The mountain a focused leader & a team player and not a quitter. KENNETH IS THE IDEAL DP," Kiriku said.

Bogonko said: "Best choice for Raila's running mate is Peter Kenneth. PK is sober & likeable character with gentle soul unlike Karua who is combative & disrespectful. Karua is female fashion of Ruto. Kenya wants DP who will RESTORE DIGNITY to office. PK is FUTURE of GEMA & Kenya politics."
