As the politics of the 2022 presidential election heats up, many figures vying to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta are busy collecting support to improve their political foundations in the run-up to the much-anticipated presidential election in 2022.
Politicians are actively touring the country in search of support for their political goals with less than 60 days till the general election. President Kenyatta is now defending Raila’s position and fully supporting him, contrary to DP Ruto’s vow.
Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi has now entered the race for the presidency in 2022. The governor stated that it was time for some communities to lead Kenya rather than the other two; Kenya has been dominated by the Kikuyu and Kalenjin since independence.
Other communities, according to the governor also deserve the chance to demonstrate how to drive in Kenya. Kiraitu, who is a supporter of Raila Odinga, the head of the Azimio la Umoja movement said it is the right moment for him to take over as president, and that he will campaign for him in the Mt Kenya region.
After the Rift Valley Governor revealed what will happen on Ruto’s side in the coming days before the August general elections, the Azimio Coalition camp is upbeat.
A large departure is set to slam the Kenya Kwanza side hard in the coming weeks, according to a post by Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, who revealed that the camp will encounter division and major turmoil after years of bravado and chest-thumping.
Governor Kinyanjui’s report stated that Politics is a game of interest and personal survival, and mass migration by political actors to unite with these beacons is expected.
However, it is unclear who may defect from Dp Ruto’s side, as the camp is now experiencing political concord, with all major players speaking in unison.
Ruto and Raila are both eager on keeping their stronghold regions intact, as well as doing everything they can to ensure that their political bigwigs keep their votes ahead of the August general elections.
