Deputy President William Ruto is in a dilemma over his 2022 running mate despite perceptions that he is spoilt for choice. In Mt Kenya, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi and Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria are possible candidates. Soi MP Caleb Kositany yesterday confirmed that the DP could have a headache in identifying his running mate. It is not a must I be the candidate,” Ruto said in an interview with Kameme FM. According to insiders aware of the behind-the-scenes manoeuvres to steady Ruto’s presidential bid, the deputy president candidate won’t be a “flower” girl but one with a substantial voting bloc.
