Deputy President William Ruto continues to bring closer activists, jubilee party critics,  former politicians, and upcoming politicians, artists among others in his bid to the statehouse in 2022.

Among the top allies include the Malindi Mp Aisha Jumwa, the fearless leader joined Ruto in campaigning for Jubilee’s Kibra by-election candidate McDonald Mariga yet her party ODM also fielded a candidate.

The former Senator for Kakamega Bonny Khalwale defected to Jubilee from Ford Kenya. Khalwale has hosted the Deputy President in Western Kenya on various events, most recently in October during the burial of his wife. 

It's now evident that Dr. Bonny Khalwale is an ally and a strong campaigner for DP William Ruto in the western region.

However, another underground ally Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has registered his own political party, the Civic Renewal Party, he is in the preparations to galvanize votes in Mt Kenya to team up with Ruto in the race for the presidency.

Kwale County Governor Salim Mvurya ditched his former party ODM in 2015 and joined Jubilee Party, through which he was elected for the second time into office.

Governor Mvurya is a close ally and confidant of DP William Ruto and he is consolidating votes and support from South Coast.

Garissa Township MP has started aligning himself with William Ruto’s camp with clear intentions of supporting him in his 2022 presidential race.

In the run-up to the 2017 general election, Kiunjuri wanted to vie the for the gubernatorial seat of Laikipia County, but his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, told him to shelve the move.

In May this year, Kiunjuri asked the Mt.Kenya region to support Ruto in the 2022 presidential race. 

However, Kiunjuri created his own party in preparation for 2022. It is evident that DP William Ruto may have a hand in the formation of the party.

Others include Moses Kuria, Kimani Ngunjiri, Ken Nyale, Gideon Mung'aro, Oscar Sudi, Kipchimna Murkomen, Dennis Itumbi, Didymus Baraza, Granton Samboja, Suleiman Shahbal, Johnson Sakaja among others.
