Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has hinted at contesting for the Presidency in 2022 polls.
Kalonzo's presidential candidature is dependent on a number of things.
He will be left in deep shock if both President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga fail to endorse his presidential bid.
It is easy for a horse to pass through a hole of a needle than the Wiper leader to beat Deputy President William Ruto if he doesn’t get the duo's support.
Kalonzo will with no doubt be thrown under the bus if he fails to convince both Uhuru and Raila or even one of them to stand with him to the ballot box in the next General Elections.
Kalonzo has been facing a rebellion from his political backyard.
The Ukambani political kingpin has to move fast to ensure that he regains control of the region before he can make it to power when that time comes.
The contest will be a nightmare for Kalonzo if Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua wins the hearts of some of the residents in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is completing his second and final term in office.
Kalonzo must hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
