What you need to know:

  • It is remarkable, in fact, that since demise of Kanu at the 2002 elections, no ruling party or coalition has lasted more than one term. 
  • Dr Ruto is bolting with his minions into the UDA Plan B while the carcass that remains with President Kenyatta awaits only the pallbearer.
