The best Presidential Candidates in 2022

By RAPHAEL MUCHIRI WANJOHI | October 11th 2019

I think the time has come for me to declare my political stand. I don't support Uhuru and Ruto. I don't support Raila, either. So who do I support?

In this country, we need someone neutral — somebody not affiliated to any dynasty, whatsoever.

We need someone not so famous like Ruto, Uhuru, or Raila. I am talking about a leader like Mudavadi, Kalonzo, Moses Kuria, or even Moses Wetangula.

Ekuru Aukot is not included there.

You see, this story of dynasties started with two powerful families; Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.

Sometimes we read that Jaramogi kept the seat for Jomo Kenyatta and said, "No Kenyatta, No independence!"

Then, it came to the Moi dynasty. Moi was a good man, but the 1982 coup attempt led by the likes of Raila Odinga and Orengo made him what some people would call a 'dictator.'

Then from there came the Moi's fight with Matiba, Kibaki, Raila, Karua, Rubia in the 1990s.

Moi formed the so-called YK92 that included the famous DP Ruto. In 2002, Moi endorsed Uhuru Kenyatta to run against Narc as a way of keeping his promise to Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

In 2002, a new face was introduced into the mix-Mwai Kibaki. Raila refused to lead and said, "Kibaki Tosha."

Kibaki led the country from 2002 to 2013.

And as far as we know, Kibaki was the best president when it came to building an economy.

In summary, Raila belongs to a dynasty that loses almost all the time or lets other people become presidents voluntarily.

Uhuru comes from the high and mighty family of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta

Ruto is a project of Moi plus some other individuals. Jubilee is a continuation of KANU in a digital version.

The only president who doesn't belong to a dynasty is Mwai Kibaki.

So you see my friend, that's why we need someone neutral.

If NASA, CORD, or ODM can support Mudavadi or Kalonzo, one of them can be president in 2022 or 2027.

If Jubilee can rally behind Moses Kuria, he can become president.

To me, those are the best candidates, unless you have any other suggestions.
