Deputy President William Ruto is indisputably one of Kenya’s astute politicians at the moment.

Ruto has climbed the ranks to be one of Kenya’s most influential politicians.

As his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta heads to retirement in 2022, the DP has been fingered as a front-runner in the race to occupy state house.

NASA leader Raila Odinga’s adviser Salim Lone has been the latest leader to publicly commend Ruto over his political mastery.

“Handshake lulled many into believing Ruto 2022 was finished. Untrue. Ruto just about Kenya's cleverest, most organized leader. Look at this line-up and Coast's recently. Mega corruption not handicap but essential strength in our system,” Lone tweeted.

Ruto got into politics in 1992 as a Cyrus Jirongo’s MYM (mtu ya mkono) during the infamous YK92.

Those who have worked closely with the politician describe him as a great mobilizer.

The Deputy President has been crisscrossing the country mobilizing political support in tours disguised as development projects.

Already, several MP in Mt Kenya region, Coast and Western have already pledged their allegiance to the DP.
