Opinion: Powerful Mt Kenya Politician Who Could Be Ruto's Favourite Candidate For Running Mate

Political intrigues have started taking shape as 2022 fast approaches with Kenya' s conventional political power- brokers and busybodies seemingly deciding that there is no justifiable reason why William Ruto could be State House' s next occupant. The anti- Ruto crusaders with support from Raila Odinga' s ODM camp are doing everything within their reach to ensure Ruto' s Presidential ambitions hit a dead end by joining hands to form a larger and exclusive pro- Handshake army which is propagating BBI' s gospel that Ruto is strongly opposing.

Ruto' s fall out with his boss forced leaders allied to him to follow the route their master had taken forming the Hustler Movement which is currently giving the System Sleepless Nights on how to best tame them.

Evidently Hustler Movement gains have continued to be a pain in Ruto' s opponents circles with them de- popularizing his agenda terming it a recipe for chaos. However, the Hustler narrative seems to have sunk so well in many of Kenyan' s heads and it might be an uphill task for those opposing it to bring it down.

Ex- Bomet governor' s unexpected turn about to support the Hustler Movement agenda seems to have opened doors for other Governors Languishing in Political cold to also have the bold move. And if the speed at which the narrative is sweeping through the Political divide is anything to go by former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo is likely to be next governor to be swept by the Hustler Tsunami.

Kabogo who is an articulate, brave, well sourced politician with extensive political network is currently basking in political cold. He is among the pioneers of The National Alliance Party and Jubilee Coalition. During his gray days with Dp Ruto he could openly challenge the head of state to remember where he has come from and people who stood by him when no one was willing. There being no permanent friends and enemies in Politics, Kabogo could easily switch gears and once again support Ruto' s agenda.

If he so does, Kabigo's chances of rising to national politics will be elevated as he could be easily picked as Ruto's choice for running mate come 2022. Currently Mt. Kenya region is yet to find a formidable regional Kingpin when President Uhuru exists the Political stage. Kabogo has been fronted as a potential candidate for a kingpin in the region and joining Ruto's camp could take his chances to a whole new level, don't you think so?
