Kenyans react to Ruto-Raila potential partnership in 2022

Kenyans have received news of Nasa leader Raila Odinga offering to support DP William Ruto’s presidential bid in 2022 with mixed reactions.

Mr Odinga on Thursday surprised friend and foe when he said that Mr Ruto needs him to realize his dream in 2022.

“Does Ruto think he can be a President without Raila?” posed Mr Odinga in Kedowa, Kipkelion East. “I can help him get there if he wants,” he added.

On social media, some dismissed Mr Odinga.

Others actually felt Mr Odinga was the jinx that the DP needed to get rid of.

Others, however agreed with the Nasa leader.

But there were those who felt Mr Ruto’s goose was cooked with or without Mr Odinga’s support.

Others did an audit of Raila-Ruto past relationship. The two worked together in ODM during the 2007 general election whose results were disputed. Mr Ruto’s backyard in Rift Valley supported the Nasa leader almost to a man.
