This is the top most seat that is coveted by most politicians with four having earlier declared their interest.
According to the new proposed Kenyan constitution, one who gets more votes i.e 50+1%( won more than half of the total counties vote) will be declared winner and sworn in as president.Political analyst Herman Manyora said that it will be a two horse race for Rail a and Ruto but other aspirants like Musyoka, Mudavadi and Mutua have joined the race.Ruto and Raila are way into their campaigns exchanging harsh words as they try to outdo each other.
City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has hinted that the presidential race will be between deputy president and former prime minister.According to the lawyer, Raila will vie as a jubilee candidate.This is contrary to the earlier sentiments by president Kenyatta who had Promised to support Ruto under Jubilee when his term ends.Things seemed to fall apart as they divided and now the president has been more closer to Raila than the dp.
“As the 2022 presidential race narrows down to a 2 horse race, Raila as the jubilee candidate and Euro as the opposition candidate, what will my BELOVED JUBILEE do with the ORPHANS…Gideon, Musyoka, Mudavadi, Dr. Fred,CS Kagwe, Peter Kenneth et al who were promised for that number 1 slot.” Said the lawyer.
