Kenya Kwanza to name running mate before Monday: Kenyan Kwanza Union presidential candidate  William Ruto will announce his running mate by Monday.

Speaking to the media at his Karen residence on Tuesday, the deputy said the names of those representing him would be submitted to the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission by a deadline.

“I want to assure you that as candidates for the Kenyan Kwanza and the next general election, we will submit our running mates to the IEBC by the deadline,” Ruto said. The IEBC is expected to receive the names of the presidential nominees’ running mates by April 16.

In the Ruto-led Kenyan Kwanza coalition, Senator Tharaka Nithi, Kitthure Kindiki, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, MP Mathira, Rigathi Gachagua, and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi are some of the leaders believed to be responsible for fighting for the position.
National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, a late member of the Kenya-Kwanza coalition, has also been mentioned several times as a potential running mate.
