The biggest headache for the leading presidential candidates is about who will be their running mates in the upcoming August 9 polls.
For Deputy President William Ruto, his options are seemingly limited with a big likelihood that he will pick a deputy from the Mt Kenya region despite earlier demands from Musalia Mudavadi allies to have him deputize the DP.
On the other hand, Azimio’s flagbearer Raila Odinga has a relatively harder task of naming his running mate ahead of the May 10 deadline after a number of leaders lay claim to the coveted position.
However, the DP Ruto camp has recently set the tongues wagging after publicly calling for Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to be Raila’s running mate despite being on the opponent’s faction.
The Kenya Kwanza team has been demanding that Kalonzo should be made the running mate in Azimio without which he should decamp to their side with Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen cunningly claiming that the former Vice President is being disrespected.
Why do you think the Kenya Kwanza camp wants Kalonzo named Raila’s running mate? And do you think Kalonzo will ditch Azimio for Ruto’s camp if he fails to be Raila’s number 2?
