Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka’s presidential dream is alive.

The recent wrangles in the Jubilee leadership following its Vice Chairman David Murathe’s shocker to Deputy President William Ruto is good news to Kalonzo.

Kalonzo can now play his cards well to ensure that he rises to power in 2022 polls. 

Things are no longer easy for Ruto, who was banking on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s endorsement to beat the Wiper leader hands down.

Ruto, the Kalenjin's political kingpin, has now said he is ready to support any candidate who will beat him during the Jubilee party's primaries.

Days after making the remarks, Murathe has now vowed to move to the Supreme Court to bar him from contesting for the top seat when that time comes.

Kalonzo will no doubt smile to the State House if Ruto is dropped and Uhuru and Raila back his candidature.

The Wiper leader has maintained that he is the best candidate for the job.

However, the political temperature was not very favorable until former Prime Minister Raila Odinga made a surprise u-turn to work with Uhuru.

Kalonzo is now at the touchline waiting for the 2022 presidential election's whistle to blow so as to show Ruto dust in the race for power.
