Deputy President William Ruto is a man on a mission.

Ruto has repeatedly said that the time has come for him to rise to power after supporting several candidates including President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM chief Raila Odinga in the past general elections. 

The current political situation in Ukambani is good news for Ruto, a man who is ready to do anything to succeed Uhuru.

Ruto is likely to garner millions of votes from the Ukambani region if he manages to win the hearts of the three governors who feel dissatisfied with Kalonzo's leadership.

The second in command needs to reach out to governors Alfred Mutua (Machakos), Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) in order to get more votes from the region.

The DP will be better placed to beat Kalonzo hands down if the trio campaign for him in Ukambani. 

There is no way Kalonzo can become president if Ruto beats him in his Ukambani backyard.

Both Kalonzo and Ruto have exuded confidence that they will be forces to reckon with in the race for presidency in 2022 polls.

However, the handshake has complicated matters for the two leaders.
