It very easy. Both must ran to be relevant. if Eugene become anybody's running mate; he become DEAD MEAT; Luhya will go with Mudavadi. Same case applies to Mudavadi...it one of the reason he quit ODM-R--if he doesn't run--Wamalwa was going to make a mince meat out of him..he is seen it in by-elections including ward ones.
So basically they will both have to ran or somehow one has to step down for another. I think Eugene might just have to step-down and become dead meat.
2 scenarios; Both of them ran; and they each score 6%.Mudavadi ran hard and score 12%...max 15%.
Luhyas have to address 2 problems before i take them seriously. Voter apathy and voter unity of purpose.
Mudavadi i'm afraid is joining rather too late.
As of now the race is btw Ruto and Raila; Ruto has bigger solid reliable KAMATUSA base; Raila's Luo base is smaller. There is possibility that somebody could lock out Gusii and Mijikenda by choosing running mate from there. If that happens..Raila has very little headway to make up for difference btw him and Ruto.
So we may see ruto versus uhuru in second round.
