Opinion: The Only Way Jonathan Mueke Can Beat Charity Ngilu in Kitui 2022 Gubernatorial Race

The former deputy governor for Nairobi county Jonathan Mueke is one of the candidates eyeing to succeed Charity Kaluki Ngilu as the next governor for Kitui county in 2022.

Mueke will be contesting under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) of the deputy president William Samoei Ruto and he has been making inroads in the area to popularize his bid.

However, following the track record of governor Charity Ngilu, it will be very difficult for Mueke to uproot her, but there is only one way he can use to easily beat her.

Currently, Wiper Democratic Movement of the former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka is the most dominant party in the region hence Mueke should defect from UDA and join Kalonzo Musyoka's camp.

The United Democratic Alliance being one of the youngest parties in the country has not spread its roots much in the region hence will make it very difficult for Mueke to prosper.

Kalonzo is the political kingpin of the region and the entire Ukambani and whoever sides with him will have higher chances of winning hence the need for Mueke to join Wiper party.
