Giving it to the scenario that 2022 general election has begun to gain more momentum,as much as the race lies between the two horses, deputy president William Ruto is the one to watch.
Retracting it back in the early 90s we can clearly envisage that former late president Daniel Moi was the Kingpin of the region but this has been again taken over by the predominant party of UDA led by deputy Regardless of the existence of KANU party.
The massive influence is not only inculcated in Rift Valley region but also in other parts like central Kenya where he enjoys the support of around sixty percent of the total votes, partly Eastern, North Eastern, Coastal region and various places of Nyanza where he has decided to make enroutes such as Kisii,Nyamira and Awendo.
Carefully analysing at Ruto's pattern of campaigns it is quite different with that of Baba's approach,in that Ruto's model of approach directly addresses needs of common hustlers from bottom up approach, while that of Tinga sounds to be benefitting those at the top first is when it is trickled down to common citizens,which is not very much cognizant with hustlers.
Outrageously looking at Ruto's penetration in Raila's strongholds,his main aim is not necessarily to acquire votes in the region but to ensure Baba don't get one hundred percent of the total votes in the region.
In which he has eventually succeeded, thereafter they will be left with only options of the battle grounds regions like Samburu,Mandera, Kajiado, where dp will be having upper hand compared to Raila.
