Taking over from President Kenyatta, all signs show that Deputy President William Ruto is ready to ascend to power in 2022. Here are five reasons why Ruto will be President of the Republic of Kenya.

The Power of Incumbency
Having been in power since 2013 after spectacularly dodging the International Criminal Court (ICC) cases, the Deputy President has amassed so much power.  The trend that we have with candidates winning second terms in recent years is not random. It is a result of acquisition of power by these leaders. The ability to drive the news cycle is also important as we see these leaders daily in the media, influencing those who do not support them.

Amassed Wealth
It may not be publicly declared but judging by assets acquired by the DP, campaign funding will not be a problem. Some argue that as long as you are already in government, you can use public funds to "advertise" or travel to rallies etc. This will be an added advantage as he seeks the top seat.

Owed Promises
Scratch my back and I will scratch yours. Many know and believe that in 2013, the agreement between Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto was simple. I will play second fiddle for 10 years, then after that, you will retire and I will take over for the rest of the ride. This owed promise will come back to influence 2022.

Ruthlessness
DP Ruto is known to be a no nonsense leader who will go after what he wants. He has severally dealt with allies who go astray and try to fight him. While there are no permanent friends and enemies in politics, very few of his allies will dare cross him. This will solidify his support base.

Dumb Electorate
Yes. Money will be poured and this will sway some to voting for him.
