The choosing of running mate by the top presidential aspirants is hard but to chew due to the many interests they have to serve.
The selection of a deputy president candidate in both the Azimio la Umoja and Kenya Kwanza has the ability to turn the tables and cause massive defection.
Justin Muturi’s entrance to Kenya Kwanza has complicated the Dr William Ruto’s selection of the deputy president candidate.
Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki, Kiharu member of parliament Ndindi Nyoro and Righathi Gachagua are among other candidates that have been frontiered to be Ruto’s deputy.
On the other hand KANU’s request for Raila Odinga to choose Gideon Moi as the deputy has made it tough for Azimio.
After speculation that Maendeleo Chap Chap leader and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua was joining Kenya Kwanza he restated his support for Raila.
Mutua said that he will work with Raila despite talks with DP Ruto though he was among parties that felt sidelined in Azimio coalition and he is ready for truce with Kalonzo.
