“DP Ruto is fit to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta,the rest are paranoiac in nature,”-Prof Kisiang’ani
According to political analyst Prof Edward Kisiang’ani,DP William Ruto is very determined and serious in becoming Kenya’s 5th President after president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kisiang’ani observed that Of all aspirants seeking to take over power from President Uhuru Kenyatta, it was only Ruto who has proved beyond reasonable doubt and what it takes to clinch the country’s most powerful seat in the 2022 general election.
“There seems to be only one person in Kenya today who shows relentless desire and unmatched zeal to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as Kenya’s next CEO. This person is DP William Ruto. The rest are engaged in frivolous political games dominated by insults, malice and paranoia,” the University Don tweeted on Tuesday.

DP William Ruto is among the leading politicians who have so far declared their interest in the presidency and has been crisscrossing the country seeking support for his presidential bid.
Though his close competitor ,Raila Odinga hasn’t yet declared his intention to vie for presidency in 2022,DP Ruto is expected to face off with the ODM leader ,including other potential candidates such as Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Gideon Moi (KANU), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford-Kenya), Alfred Mutua (MCC), Kivutha Kibwana (Muungano) among others.
However, according to his close ally former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale, Raila will be the main rival and that is why Ruto’s camp was working on a strategy to lock his key traditional support bases.
“We are well aware that our main opponent will be Mr Odinga. We are also aware that the DP remains in firm control of Rift Valley and Central, and we do not want to lose a single vote from there,” Khalwale said as quoted by Sunday Nation.
