Raila Odinga is the most experienced politician in Kenya at the moment having been in the Government for the longest period of time. Despite that, Raila Odinga's political dream seems to have not been achieved as seen in his numerous attempts to clinch the top seat of the land.
The race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta has elicited a mixed reactions as the top leaders in the country have emerged with various promises to the people. On the same note the position of deputy president has also given them a very tough headache as regional balance must be factored in the process of choosing a running mate.
Survey poll done by Mizani Africa, has revealed the preferred running mate to Raila Odinga and William Ruto ahead of 2022 general election. The poll showed the preferred female running mate, the leader who is likely to win the general election and the leader who is popular in Mt Kenya region.

The lawmakers led by Nduati Ngugi of Gatanga, Peter Kimari of Mathioya, Wangari Mwaniki of Kigumo and nominated senator Isaac Ngugi said that former presidential hopeful Peter Kenneth is the best person from Mount Kenya region to deputise Raila Odinga.

The former vice president was appearing at an interview on Wednesday morning at local Kalenjin Radio station, Emoo FM. According to Kalonzo Musyoka, all those who have looted during the Jubilee regime should brace themselves should One Kenya Alliance OKA takes the country's leadership.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has officially welcomed ODM leader Raila Odinga to the One Kenya Alliance team. The team comprises of Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper party, Moses Wetangila of Ford Kenya, Musalia Mudavadi of ANC party and Gideon Moi of KANU party.

With political temperatures hightening in the country due to the upcoming general election, several leaders have been seen actively in the field searching for more leaders in order to boost their political parties ahead of 2022. The fiercest battle is expected to involve two rivals, that is Odm Party leader Raila Odinga and UDA leader DP William Ruto.
There has been speculation that DP William Ruto could peak a female running mate from Mount Kenya area to boost his chances of getting massive votes from the vote rich region. The list consists of Martha Karua and Anne Waiguru who would in my opinion not add any value to Ruto's 2022 bid.
While speaking through a local radio station in Kenya, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has given ODM chief Raila Odinga his own directives and conditions if the former prime minister decides to join OKA ahead of the next year's general elections. Kalonzo told Emoo FM that there is a room for Raila to change his mind and join the OKA coalition but he should forget being the flag bearer of the alliance, since the Wiper chief will not accept to deputise him anymore.
After 2007 general election, grand coalition Government was formed so as to accommodate both former president Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga. Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga's allies shared the Government almost in the same portion. To ensure that power was shared equally, prime minister and two deputy prime minister's posts were introduced.
