Even as pundits continue to analyze the aftermath of Sunday’s ‘earthquake’ by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President William Ruto, one thing is for certain, the 2022 polls’ dynamics have now changed completely.
Despite Mudavadi announcing his candidature, it is unimaginable to even think DP Ruto would drop his bid to back the ANC leader for the top seat.
As a matter of fact, questions have already been raised on which position the former Vice President would hold should Ruto form the next government.
According to Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura, Mudavadi should forget the DP’s position as he claimed that the coveted running mate’s role is already reserved for someone from Central Kenya.
“We welcome Mudavadi to the Hustler Nation, he is a good person and experienced politician but I know for sure is that the Deputy President’s position has been reserved for someone from Central Kenya,” Mwaura said.
While addressing the same question on Monday, Ruto revealed that they have an agreement in place on how they are intending to form the next government but did not disclose the particular details of the agreement.
Do you think Mudavadi will be Ruto’s running mate after their coalition agreement? If not, which position do you think he is likely to hold should they triumph in the elections?
