The two presidential aspirants together with their camps have traded barbs on who is likely to have a larger support base from the region.
Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua on his side said people have started leaving Raila’s camp adding that different regions have already rejected him as he revealed where Mt Kenya allegedly stands.
Gachagua speaking during DP Ruto’s rally in Bungoma County claimed the Coast has changed tune and is no longer supporting Raila.
The MP further said ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang'ula have also ditched the former Prime Minister.
According to Gachagua, Mt Kenya will also not be left behind as he claimed the region will also not support Raila’s presidential bid.
“Huyu mtu wa Kitendawili, kila mtu wame toroka yeye. This Kitendawili guy, everyone has left him. In the mountain, we rejected him a long time ago. People from Mombasa have left him, Kamba community has rejected him,” he said.
“Musalia Mudavadi and Wetangula have left him, sisi tutakua wajinga twende kwake (Are we stupid to go to him?),” said Gachagua.
