Kenya elections candidates strategies

Ruto ahead waiting for the VP nominees

22-04-2022 by Freddie del Curatolo

With 110 days to go before the national elections in Kenya, with the electoral campaign already underway and the media talking of nothing else, the two great challengers, mzee (the old) Raila Odinga, who has always represented the opposition but is now an ally of the current majority, and William Ruto, current vice-president of the government but in fact already in the opposition, must nominate within a week their deputy, with whom they are expected to carry their propaganda around the country in the last few months.
As for Odinga and his ODM movement, particularly linked to the Luo tribe and well rooted on the coast, the choice should fall on a Kikuyu deputy, Kenyatta's ethnic group and always the most influential. Ruto has as an ally Musalia Mudavadi, of the Luhya tribe (the most numerous after the two already mentioned) who is able to move from 3 to 5% of the votes but could also run directly for the big target. Will he be Ruto's deputy or will the challenger himself, who belongs to the Kalenjin ethnic group, in turn choose a Kikuyu?
Questions that the whole nation is asking itself because in the end power games are more important than programs. The new polls, from one of the most popular African radio stations, keep Ruto in the lead with 45% of the vote, with Odinga 4 lengths behind. In this way, they would go to the ballots, for the organization of which the electoral commission has already said in the past that there are not enough funds. Mudavadi could become the needle of the scales also for this. There are no other major candidates who exceed one percent of the vote, at least as far as the polls are concerned.
