Friday June 12, 2020 – The 2022 presidential race in Kenya seems to be a two horse race between Deputy President William Ruto and patented Presidential loser, Raila Odinga.
Though Raila Odinga is yet to declare his presidential ambitions, it is clear that the old man will vie for President using the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
Dr William Ruto has already declared his bid and said he will vie for the seat using the Jubilee Party ticket.
Former United States (US) President Barack Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, has waded into the 2022 presidential race vowing to stand with Ruto all the way.
In an early morning tweet on Friday, Malik described the second in command as a tough, resilient and brilliant politician who had stood the test of time.
“William Ruto is tough, resilient, brilliant, and most of all kind at heart.”
“He has stood with many who have betrayed him.”
“I stand with the Hustler nation,” he said.
This is a big boost for Willliam Ruto’s bid since the Obamas are as popular as the Odingas among the Luo community.
