As the clock ticks towards 2022, the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta is in top gear. Political alliances and mobilization is taking shape. Various polls have ranked DP William Ruto as the favorite candidate to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta followed by ODM chief Raila Odinga from a distant. However this is nothing with 2 years to elections. New entrants will likely join the race, alliances will be formed which might change the equation.


So far the race is crowded with Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, Gideon Moi, Mukhisa Kituyi, Kivutha Kibwana, Alfred Mutua all eyeing the top job in the country. However the make or break for any candidate will be in the choice of the running mate. There are various things to consider before a presidential candidate settles on a running mate, key among them regional balance, gender, experience, loyalty, track record and financial muscle.


DP William Ruto will be keen to choose someone who meets above criteria. After keen observation of possible running mates for DP William Ruto and analysing his moves it is clear the DP will settle on woman as a running mate. The DP some time back while in Mombasa county gave this indication. The next question now will be who among the women will the DP settle on?


Due to the issue of the regional balance, appeasing his support base and what the running mate will bring on table, the DP is likely to settle on candidate from the vote rich Mt. Kenya region. Anne Waiguru was once considered as a possible running mate for the DP however they fell apart even though there are no permanent enemies in politics.


The next question is, which other lady from Mt. Kenya region can be a running mate? The answer is none other than Martha Karua. A keen observer will agree that Martha Karua once staunch critic of DP William Ruto has turned to be one of his strongest defender recently. She has been opposing BBI as well terming it devisive. This can never be a mere coincidence, Martha Karua has her eyes on the running mate post.
