DP Ruto’s camp also reportedly rejected four former politicians from the opposition stronghold of Nyanza region who had featured in the list.

A source told The Star that 2022 succession surfaced with Ruto reportedly believing that the former politicians are too close to Raila, while others are “too independent and/or close to the Baringo Senator Gideon Moi,”.

The inclusion of Kiprono Kittony in the new outfit was also flatly rejected by Ruto’s camp who see him as a threat due to his close ties with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi who has also declared interest in the 2022 race to State House.
