Deputy President William Ruto is expected to use the UDA party in his quest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 General Elections.
The DP sold his agenda ahead of the 2022 elections in a virtual conversation with more than 50 diasporans.
Ruto said the government recognizes the critical and huge contribution that Kenyans in the Diaspora make to the development of Kenya.
“On this account, we have begun a clear, inclusive, and structured engagement with them to concretize and prosecute our broad and solid plans that will make Kenya a better and fairer country for everyone,” he said.
He added: “We will open a platform for everyone in the diaspora to join the conversation.”
Already DP Ruto has declared his candidacy and he is expected to battle it out with the rest who will take a stab at the presidency.
Raila has not come out to announce his bid, but most ODM top leaders believe that he still has one bullet left.
President Uhuru during Madaraka Day gave his slightest hint yet that he may throw his support behind Raila.
Other prospective candidates include Musalia Mudavadi, Gideon Moi and Kalonzo Musyoka.
