Political analyst Kissinger Kakai now claims that Barongo Senator Gideon Moi is better placed to clinch the presidency in the approaching 2022 general elections as compared to Deputy President William Ruto.
Basing on his latest political moves, including his sudden vocal nature and his tour of Western Kenya last weekend, the lawmaker made it clear that he is considering taking his first shot at the top post.
According to the analyst, Gideon will be riding on the foundation established by his father Daniel Moi who was president for 24 years until his retirement in 2002.
He noted that Gideon is coming to the boxing ring armed with connections and friends made by his father, unlike Ruto who is a newcomer in the area and who enjoys no significant connections.
“Gideon goes into 2022 with networks while Ruto, on the other hand, has non and he will have the oldest party which he will use to solicit support and take a stab at the presidency,” he told the People Daily on phone, Friday.
According to Kakai, Gideon will have it easier syphoning votes from across the nation courtesy of the favours his father extended to these regions, while Ruto has nothing to refer back to in his vote hunt.
On matters finances and campaigns, Kakai is of the opinion that Gideon is better off as he comes from a lineage characterized with wealth.
Ruto on the other hand, he said, will not be able to match.
“We must not forget Gideon is the son of the former president so he has the networks to mount a fierce campaign machinery. He will be keen to use the networks his father established in his tenure,” he is further quoted.
