Ruto Handed Major Boost Ahead of 2022 as Political Analyst Claims Raila Will Not Run for Presidency

With the country’s General elections coming in less than a year, politicians are warming up for one of their busy periods in a politician’s calendar; the campaigning season.

Majority are working on alliances whereas others have already hit the ground running campaigning for their preferred candidates.

The Presidential race at the moment is poised between DP Ruto, OKA Coalition and Raila Odinga. At the moment DP William Ruto and Raila Odinga are the best poised to clinch Kenya’s 5th President Title.

However, according to political Analyst David Makali, there are chances the ODM boss will not be running for Presidency in 2022.

According to Makali, Raila who has tried for 4 times without any success may choose to support another candidate especially with his fame fading over time.

This may work on Ruto’s advantage as the only candidate who may have come close to his ambitions was Raila.

"I do not think the narrative that the race is between Raila Odinga & Ruto is credible, I do not expect any new entrants to the presidential race, except for the ones who have already shown interest. Baba will not run in next election." - Political Analyst David Makali.
