why William Ruto Will Be The Fifth President Of Kenya

By john kipchirchir | September 13th 2017

Many have known him for the wit and charisma when handling political issues. William Ruto is a politician that can only be compared to Raila Odinga. He is believed to be the toughest politician in the country and the most feared one.

Despite the many challenges he has faced in his political journey, Mr Ruto has always come out stronger and even better. During the recently concluded polls, many pundits had foressen a situation in which Ruto had lost grip of his political backyard owing to the fallout he had with his namesis Isaac Rutto immediate former governor Bomet.

Political observers have intimated that come 2022, there's no one who will be equalled to the tough politician. Having declared that he won't run again, Raila Odinga has cleared the way for a smooth sail for Mr Ruto.

He is expected to fight out for the position with a host of ex governors in the 2022 race most of whom have been axed out of the political limelight in the recently concluded polls.

It is however important to note that, his ascent to the presidency will depend on how they handle their second term if they clinch the seat in the repeat polls scheduled for October 17th.
