Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome has spoken on her next move in 2022 general election after she lost in deputy president Dr William Ruto's runningmate contest.

Through her official Facebook page, Wahome has indicated that she would defend her parliamentary seat in the August 2022 general election on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket. This will be her third term in Parliament after winning the seat in 2013 and 2017.

She shared her likely poster in the page which bore UDA colours, logo, her portrait, and that of DP Ruto, as well as her name and the seat she was vying for in the polls.

This comes days after DP Ruto picked Mathira MP Geoffrey Rigathi Gachagua as his runningmate in the forthcoming polls. He settled on Gachagua after intense negotiations at his Karen official residence on Saturday and Sunday.

Besides Alice Wahome and Gachagua, others who had been shortlisted for the job included Tharaka Nithi senator Prof Kithure Kindiki, Kiharu MP Samson Ndindi Nyoro and National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi. Only Gachagua and Kindiki made it to the final list and in the long run, the former met all the desired requirements for the position.

Eventually, all those who lost in the contest accepted the Mathira lawmaker and vowed to continue supporting Kenya Kwanza coalition. They vowed to campaign for the coalition in forthcoming elections to ensure it forms the next government.

The Ruto-Gachagua joined ticket is set to form government and succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta if it wins the election m
