According to reports, former prime minister Raila Amollo Odinga will be vying for presidency come 2022. The battle for the next Kenya president will be between Raila Odinga and incumbent deputy president William Samoei Ruto. The Hustler “William Ruto” is well known for his good campaign tactics. On the other hand, Raila Odinga followers are “die-hards” Raila Odinga followers base never changes no matter what. He has constant followers of over 6 million voters.
Below Is A Breakdown To Reasons Why Ruto Might Lose To Raila Odinga
1. RUTO’S SYSTEM OF CAMPAIGN NOT WORKING TO MANY KENYANS
Many Kenyans are not liking the way Ruto is conducting his campaigns. Ruto has been campaigning by using the term "hustle" which many people are not happy about it. Another key thing is that he has been giving Kenyans wheelbarrows which seems not to be helping then in any way. Many Kenyans who live in urban areas have a lot of problems which has not been addressed for years. An example is people who live in Nairobi lack clean water for use. This is a very basic need that Kenyans demand from leaders. The Uhuru Ruto government has not done much to Kenyans and life has become even harder to common Mwananchi. This means a judgment on their governance is for both of them. photo source: Twitter @williamsruto.
2. Prisident Uhuru Kenyatta Might Support Raila Odinga 2022.
Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta have been very close lately. The two have been advocating for BBI which Ruto has been opposing. This means that there is a high chance that Raila will get support from Uhuru Kenyatta. If the BBI will pass the two will stand a high chance to work together. BBI has been advocating for equitability, equality, and peace among Kenyan ethnic groups. It has also promised young people and women opportunities. This means Raila will stand a high chance to become the next president.
