Deputy president William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga are seen by many kenyans as the front-runners for the 2022 succession politics with president Uhuru Kenyatta entering his last one year in office.
As that happens, Radio Africa LTD has conducted a poll in the country to find out how the different politicians in the country are doing as far as the 2022 race is concerned.
In the poll, deputy president William Ruto emerged as the best with a whooping 43% of those who were interviewed saying they would choose him. On the other hand, former prime minister Raila Odinga scored a paltry 14%.
This poll has triggered mixed reactions among kenyans on social media with some seemingly wondering how Raila Odinga's statistics are reading out. Others posted their approval for deputy president William Ruto.
Vincent: The handshake was meant to keep our presidential candidate Raila Odinga busy and get him out of the streets. Now a year to another election is upon him to regenerate himself. Ujaluo ni gharama kweli. Yaani Baba couldn't see this coming?
Kennedy: Yet He will be the next president. No one else can neat him. Raila will def loose..no one else can match Ruto..Only Raila but He cant win. Ruto is the next president..He knows it, Raila knows it, Uhuru knows it.
