Kenya Kwanza MPs claim Ruto’s move to support Raila Odinga for the AU job will earn him a direct win in the 2027 general elections.

A faction of Kenya Kwanza Members of Parliament now predicts that President William Ruto will be re-elected without opposition in the 2027 presidential election.

The lawmakers said the recent political moves by President Ruto have hinted at a strategy to penetrate his political rival territories as he builds his chances for the 2027 polls.

Caleb Mule, a Machakos MP, claimed that Ruto’s pledge to back Raila Odinga’s candidacy for the AU position is a ploy to win over Odinga’s supporters and strengthen his chances of winning reelection bid in 2027.

On his part, Emurrua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno noted that Ruto has a plan to tone down political antagonism across the country to create an environment conducive to development.

His sentiments were echoed by Manyatta MP Mukunji Gitonga and Laikipia Woman representative Jane Kagiri.

Following opposition leader Raila Odinga’s formal declaration that he will be running for the AU Commission chairperson’s job, there has been a wave of excitement in Kenya Kwanza and jitters in Odinga’s strongholds.
