The news comes at a time when Kenya Kwanza coalition unveiled Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua as Deputy President William Ruto’s running mate choice in the coming election.
Speaking from Karen, DP William Ruto congratulated Gachagua for clinching the position despite having a number of strong opponents including Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki.
The Deputy President tasked his running mate his first task which will be to work MP Moses Kuria to table an economic strategy that will drive Kenyans forward.
All other candidates except Kindiki who was absent congratulated Gachagua and expressed confidence in his leadership ahead of the election. Governor Anne Waiguru, Musalia Mudavi and Moses Wetangula were present.
All eyes have now shifted to Azimio as they look forward to the announcement as serious campaigns are set to kick off in the country. The announcement will also be a deal breaker in the polls as to who is favourite to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
