​WHERE POLITICS ENDS

Bottomline: Politics therefore ends with the party primaries since after they are complete, little will be remaining for the winners of the nominations.

In the recent past, the globe has been shocked by the dynamism of Kenyan politics. Politics have seen some die, others resurrect and others proceed living. Primaries of various parties have seen the politics gain a momentum that has not been experienced before.

Tough battles have been experienced during the nominations in various strongholds. This is because winning them is almost if not equal to being elected in the general elections. 

In Nyanza, ODM strongholds, the primaries have left the  likes of Jack Ranguma and Dalmas Otieno dead. Prof. Anyang’ Nyongo are among those that have resurrected while the likes of James Orengo, Junet Mohamed and Millie Odhiambo are still alive.

In Central Kenya and Rift valley, which are regarded as Jubilee strongholds, the cases were not different. Governors like Cleopas Lagat of Nandi, Cheboi Chesile of Baringo, William Kabogo of Kiambu and Joseph Ndathi of Kirinyaga have been ousted mercilessly by their close rivals with large margins. This could mean that the likes of Waititu (Baba Yao) and others are close to winning.

Politics therefore ends with the party primaries since after they are complete, little will be remaining for the winners of the nominations. This is because there will be no opponents in most of the elective posts in the stronghgolds. The political heat is expected is expected to decrease in most regions where focus will be directed to the battle grounds such as the coastal counties.
