Ruto Told he Can Win Again in 2027, But Only if he Does Two Things

Political risk expert Dismas Mokua has noted that President William Ruto only has two options for winning reelection in 2027.

Ruto has not yet expressed a desire to run for reelection, but since the 2010 constitution was adopted, Kenyan presidents have always given it a shot.

In order to handle this, according to Mokua, his government must make sure that every promise it made to Kenyans when it ran for office the first time is kept.

Additionally, he believes that Ruto must win over as many political players as he can because he needs everyone on his side.

He continues by stating that in light of this, he may need to include as many politicians as possible on his future team of Principal Secretaries, which will be presented soon.

According to the expert who spoke to The Standard, "There is nothing wrong with politicians taking on Principal Secretary posts if they have the capacity and competence and are willing to give up politics as they serve the nation in their new duties in the following five years."

It's important to note that Ruto later announced his cabinet, which is primarily composed of members of the political class, notably his supporters and collaborators.

The team had since replaced the preceding team, even though Kenyans were previously observed complaining about the rising expense of living.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was opposed to Ruto's bid for the position, was replaced by Ruto. Uhuru backed ODM leader Raila Odinga for the presidency.
