The political waves in the current kenyan politics are swaying day in day out and one must be able to swing alongside it if he/she wants to survive in it. With the general election scheduled for next year, a politician who wants to participate in it at the moment should be focusing on nothing less than campaigns ahead of that election. As of now it seems that the race for Presidency is a two horse race between Rt Hon Raila Amollo Odinga and the deputy president Dr William Samoei Ruto though other candidates are yet to declare their stand on the same. Below is therefore some of the reasons why Raila should drop his BBI Campaigns and focus on the 2022 campaigns if he wants to win the presidency against William Ruto.

1. Kenyans have lost their trust in him.

Over the past few decades, Raila Odinga has always stood firm towards ensuring that the welfare of the citizens is well taken care of by the government until recently when he decided to join the government hence leaving the citizens abandoned and face the full wrath of the government. Demonstrations against how the government transact its business are no longer there. As a result of this, the electorates no longer have trust in him and therefore if he wants to redeem himself, he should get back to his previous position.

2. Ruto is gaining sympathy from Kenyans.

In all the BBI Campaigns, the deputy president Dr William Samoei Ruto is being fought from right, centre and left from the state and the former opposition which turned a pro government because of his stand on BBI whereby he wants some of the issues ammended in the report and wanting refurendum be done alongside the general election in 2022. Ruto's stand wowed and made sense to many Kenyans as many believed that BBI was not a priority for now as some of the proposals in it could easily be tabled in the parliament and be passed without necessarily going through the long process of a refurendum. Therefore, the money allocated for the process could be channeled to do other essential things like paying the striking doctors and buy PPEs for them as they are in the front line in the fight against the covid 19 pandemic.

3. Uhuru Kenyatta's next move unpredictable.

At the moment, a succession plan is underway. Uhuru Kenyatta's move is however unpredictable as he is likely to pick his own prefered candidate and if that won't be Raila, then it will be a big blow to the former premium.

4. He has lost grip of his former political strongholds.

As we speak, it is more of a fact that Raila Odinga has lost grip of his former political backyard like western region and the coast and is now left with the Nyanza Region. So for him to win back those backyards, dropping BBI and working on a new plan is essential.

5. Should the BBI fail then Raila will go down as well.

BBI even though it is nearing its final stages is a 50-50 thing as it is facing resistance from most of the regions in the country and should it fail, it will be hard for Raila to pick himself back up for the elections is nearing.

6. Ruto has the full support from the common mwananchi who are the majority in the country.

William Ruto has managed to win trust of many Kenyans termed the hustler nation who are the majority of the electorates. He has proven to them that they can be able to trust him and work together towards ensuring that they be considered in the next government.
