Gachagua and Karua's popularity and agenda are now considered as a method to win support for Ruto and Raila in the August general election.

Mr Gachagua is an effective mobilizer who has the ear of the Kikuyus, who have backed Mr Ruto's initiatives to address economic complaints.

Ms Karua is a Kikuyu political hero who is noted for her commitment to judicial reform and anti-corruption campaigns.

Now, a recent poll suggests that the two Mt Kenya leaders who may be running mates to the top presidential candidates may have similar popularity.

According to a poll released on Thursday evening, May 19, Martha Karua has 57.02 percent of the vote, while Rigathi Gachagua has 40.66 percent.
