Her critics took to online to equate her age with that of Hon. Raila Odinga who is 76 years old. Many of those online critics are supporters of Raila’s Azimio la umoja political vehicle. All this revolved around the rumours that the Deputy President Hon. William Ruto is yet to pick either Hon. Alice Wahome or Mathira Mp Hon. Rigathi Gachagua.
Hon. Alice Wahome posted on her official Twitter handle her birth date. “Jameni…. at least let’s get my age right
As of this year, Hon. Alice Wahome is 62 years old and not 72 years as online critics was putting it.
The online debate sparked after Hon. William Ruto hinted at picking Hon. Alice Wahome or Hon. Rigathi Gachagua as running mate. As things stand by now, it is not clear who is going to be the running mate to the Deputy President after ANC and FORD-K entry into an alliance with Ruto’s UDA. The alliance is dubbed “Kenya Kwanza Alliance” comprising of UDA, ANC and FORD-K. Kenyans are left mouths open as to how those calculations are going to work in favour of Dp Ruto, and going by the constitution the DP Ruto is not going to settle for anything like a running mate as the constitution bars him.
So should Ruto pick Alice Wahome or Rigathi Gachagua as the running mate, what will happen to ANC and FORD-K leaders? They are also seeking for the Presidency post, and they have entered into an agreement with the Deputy President to form an alliance.
Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga is the only man standing alone waiting for President Uhuru’s endorsement for presidency. On the other hand Hon Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper party is leading One Kenya Alliance with Kanu chairman Hon. Gideon Moi. There are many chances that Kalonzo Musyoka will join Raila’s Azimio, however, Raila Odinga won’t step down for him. Raila Odinga is going for Presidency posts and Kalonzo’s only plate remaining is deputy president post but he has maintained that he can’t go for anything less than the presidency. Should the two fallout, Kalonzo will have to follow his Brother Hon. Musalia Mudavadi to Dp Ruto’s side. Political tolerance is taking shape in the few weeks coming, many surprises are yet to unveil.
