The ex Ruto allies have now started to realign themselves as the 2022 General Election comes closer, with some of them signing partnership agreements with other parties in the country.

Here are the 2 former allies and one of the rivals of the second in command who will not back him for the presidency.

1.Zedekiah Buzeki

Billionaire Buzeki a former ally to Ruto, has already shown interest in working with other like- minded individuals opposing the Hustler Nation Politics associated to DP Ruto. 

Earlier this year, he has been into meetings with ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi who is one of the OKA coalition principal and undoubtedly if given enough support, Buzeki could turn out to be Odinga's greatest asset in the battling down Ruto in Rift Valley region.

2.Gideon Moi

The DP must keep his support base in the vote-rich Rift Valley bastion intact amid the resurgence of Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, whose ambitions have been bolstered by his party naming him as their presidential candidate. 

Ruto has been the undisputed king of Rift Valley politics after replacing former President Daniel Moi, however, Gideon is scheming to reclaim the crown. 

3.Joshoa Kulei

Kenyan multi-millionaire tycoon Joshua Kulei, a former Private Secretary to former President Daniel Arap Moi, controls Sovereign Group. 

Being one of the late President Daniel Moi’s close allies, Kulei has teamed up with DP Ruto's bitter rival Kanu presidential flagbearer, Senator Gideon Moi.
