Peter Kenneth has emerged as the most preferred running mate for Azimio-One Kenya Alliance presidential aspirant Raila Odinga, according to a poll which was carried out between April 1 and 13, 2022, with 4,497 respondents from all 47 counties.

In a poll conducted by Radio Africa Group, Kenneth was the favourite person to deputise the ODM leader with 31.0 per cent support. Former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka came in second with 26.0 per cent, while Martha Karua closed the top three in the list of the most preferred running mates at 24.0 per cent. Political watchers however argue that Peter Kenneth adds no political value to Raila Odinga’s vote basket. He has no political base and no political following.

The Wiper party leader has in the recent past been raising the stakes in his push to deputize Raila Odinga in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya party. Kalonzo’s lieutenants say the Wiper leader is the most experienced politician, and having ceded his presidential quest, a running mate post will be the only ideal position.

Siyat Mohammed, a Wiper party aspirant in Wajir, said: “We believe he has, among all these resumes on the table besides Raila Odinga, the most pedigree and experience both governmentally and institutionally. He brings a tremendous amount of institutional and administrative experience. So, we believe if our party leader has conceded the presidency, the next best place for him to land is the deputy president.”

The next few days will be interesting to watch as the two coalitions, Azimio la Umoja and Kenya Kwanza are expected to announce their preferred running mates.
