Leading Presidential Candidates In The 2022 Race To Statehouse Were In The Same Team In 2007

The fact is all the leading candidates in the 2022 Presidential election, were in the same team during the Presidential election of 2007.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was the flag bearer and was to be deputised, by former Deputy Prime Minister Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi. Current Deputy President William Ruto was their right-hand man, and we all know how that particular position landed him at the ICC in Hague.

After that election, the three split, with the first split occurring between Honourable Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto, over the Mau forest issue. The former Prime Minister was adamant that those who had occupied Mau forest land were to be evicted, while William Ruto the then Minister for Agriculture was of a contrary opinion.

Come 2013's Election, Dr Ruto had teamed up with H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, while Musalia Mudavadi had decided to vie for Presidency on his own. ODM leader Raila Odinga was also in the race.

Fast-forward to 2021 and the three are set to meet in next year's Presidential Election, all of them having grown in Stature, Experience and Wealth.
