2022 succession of political lines is taking shape earlier enough, with president Uhuru having approximately 17 months remaining to finish his two-term reign as the fourth president of the Republic of Kenya.
Top Political heavyweights are now forming formidable coalitions to strengthen their sides as they prepare for a head to head battle to form the next government.
Following the Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Gideon Moi and Moses Wetang'ula's resolution to form a bigger coalition ahead of 2022, and also a looming formation of a Coastal Region party, deputy President William Ruto resolved not to join them, asserting that their alliances are forming around tribal lines instead of National lines.
The second in command however pointed his readiness to join hands with the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga, arguing that it's the only National party that is in existence currently.
However, according to the Standard reports, the DP's quest to work with Mr Odinga has suffered a major setback after an ally of the Coast region Governor who wanted to remain anonymous bursted out their schemes for presidency should they form a Coast Region party before 2022.
He allegged that as Coast, they will be supporting Raila for Presidency, arguing that they are forming a regional party to unite and lock the DP out of their bracket, ensuring that that he has tiny or no support at all from the region.
“We don’t want a vacuum where the DP will get traction. We must lock the ground with a new party. We will support Raila but from outside not inside. With this everybody is protected,” he said
