Deputy President William Samoei Ruto is among the key presidential contenders who are out to succeed President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta when his term comes to an end come August this year. Ruto is the party leader of United Democratic Alliance party and the flagbearer of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
With Ruto all set to emerge victorious in the forthcoming presidential contest,the choice of his preffered running mate is still water under the bridge. Though big names are being speculated and equally proposed as Ruto's probable running mates,the man from Sugoi is yet to give a green light in this regard.
Among the notable figures who are highly touted as Ruto's possible deputies include but are not limited to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Kirinyaga governor Ann Mumbi Waiguru, Tharaka-Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki,ANC Party Leader Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi and Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua.
With Kenyans still Speculating over this matter, Standard Newspaper publication of Thursday 5th has established that Kindiki seems to be the man that has conspicuously emerged as Ruto's preffered running mate. This comes amid stalemate that has stalled and seemingly muddied the attempts to pick Azimio-OKA presidential candidate Raila Odinga's running mate.
