The former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto are the major competitors in the bid to take over the presidency mantle after President Uhuru Kenyatta. They both attract massive crowds wherever they go to campaign and convince Kenyans to vote for them.
They also have political allies who help them with being vocal about their agenda and plans. The former Majority Leader of the National Assembly Aden Duale is allied to DP Ruto and in a video posted on the Ruto Mashinani page, he is heard explaining to Kenyans who they should choose as next president.
He said, "The presidential competition for the incoming elections is between the chief hustler William Ruto and Raila who is a government project. The hustler nation is aimed at helping common mwanchi rise up."
He added that Raila is depending on the government to become Kenya's president because he is close to Uhuru but he will not make it because citizens are the ones who will choose.
He informed his audience that Raila and other presidential aspirants are discussing amongst themselves on who should stand for presidency but Ruto will be interviewed by hustlers.
