Winning a presidential race in Kenya is not as easy as it sounds, if it was, Agwambo would have won it long ago. With the country hurtling towards 2022 general elections, top guns have come out to try their luck.
Of those who have expressed their readiness to have their names written alongside Uhuru, Kibaki, Moi and Jomo's is the self styled politician, William Ruto. With confidence and clarity of vision, the second in command is of a strong conviction that his Tanga Tanga team will form the next government.
Contrary to his belief, COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has downsized William's anticipation. Speaking with local dailies, the outspoken trade unionist nodded to the fact that Samoei's name will be on the presidential ballot box but Kenyans won't vote him as their president.
Atwoli has been vocal in opposing Ruto's statehouse bid terming it cancerous to the country's political and economic strata. Though the man from Sugoi believes that his Statehouse course is unstoppable, things ain't as they seem to be, as Atwoli said, the second in command could be living a lie and it is a matter of time before he learns to separate light from darkness.
