Mount Kenya will not support Deputy President William Ruto, says Herman Manyora (Opinion)

Mount Kenya will not support Deputy President William Ruto in the coming elections in 2022. This is if the findings of one of the renowned political analyst is anything to go by. In a video recorded on his Facebook page, professor Herman Manyora has come out to give his opinion on the current political developments in the country. He drew his conclusion from the recent meeting of the Mount Kenya leaders led by Mr Rigathi Gachagua. In the meeting, the leaders sought to address the Deputy President their who is their "Tangatanga" leader. They gave the conditions for their support to the deputy president in 2022 elections. They wanted to know their share in case they supported the Deputy President. They demanded that the Deputy President assures them of various positions in his government. Their also demanded that the Deputy President guarantees them that he will safeguard their interests.

Herman Manyora draws his conclusion from the above statement. He says that Mount Kenya contributes about 10 million registered voters while the Rift Valley contributes about 2 million votes. He Compares this and says that those with 10 million cannot beg the one with only 2 million votes. He goes ahead to say that the Mount Kenya region only needed to demand their rightful share without begging the Deputy President. He therefore concludes that this was a tactical retreat by The Mount Kenya MPs to bolt out of Ruto's ''Tangatanga'' team. He says all these shenanigans were meant to be mere excuses. All they wanted was to find a way to live Dr. Ruto go it alone.
