It is said that it is better the devil that you know than the angel that you have never seen.
Kenyans are well familiar and knows the three famous politicians namely President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and Opposition boss Raila Odinga. Assuming that the trio happens to be devils whom would you think of as a better devil, sympathetic and less cruel? Answer it by yourself.
Kenyans are very intelligent, hardworking and rational. Kenyans have proven out to be forgiving to politicians who has has had any other weakness but not one that is too corrupt and constantly tell lies.
Unfortunately Jubilee Party in the two terms in existence has proved to have orchestrated rampant corruption leading to economic hardship in the country called Kenya with the situation worsened by the Covid-19 endemic. That's an unforgettable weakness in the minds and eyes of Kenyans.
A new party has emerged headed by DP William Ruto called United Democratic Alliance. UDA has been marred by political conmanship and blatant lies. They force crowds, give empty promises and make faulty political moves that doesn't add to weight to reality. The latest weakness is its party leadership backing a presidential candidate like Musalia Mudavadi one who doesn't have a candindate and has been robbed off all his party's candidates by another party. UDA party leader latest move is like someone who is chasing a barren woman.
Jubilee and UDA party will find hard time being sold and marketed at the grassroot level in the 2022 general elections. My prediction is that most of those people aspiring to stand under these two parties ticket will loose their election or re-election bid.
Kenyans have learnt their hard lessons and they can't afford to jump out of a frying pan into the fire. They are always afraid and scared of bearing the same experience twice. That was evident with how the Moi administration was sent home as a whole in the 2022 and KANU later on became irrelevant.
The Orange Democratic Movement Party will win the 2022 contest with high odds since they are reputable, honest and intact in the current political business. ODM party and its leadership has got far less weaknesses than that of UDA and Jubilee combined.
