The richest voting block in the country is now experiencing a leadership crisis since independence. Currently there is no leader capable of fitting tye shoes of president Uhuru Kenyatta once he exits power. Top presidential contenders Raila Odinga and William Ruto have camper in the area. Their main aim to garner votes that will propel them to power.
William Ruto in particular has made numerous campaigns in the region. From commissioning of projects to church construction and local fundraising. This has earned him the popularity he enjoys and the support of local leaders. This makes him one of the strongest presidential candidates.
Raila Odinga has also lately unveiled his vigorous campaigns in the same area. He has sought the inclusion of Uhuru's top political strategists. The group led by Kanini Kega and Sabina Chege will rally the region behind Raila Odinga. This is his fifth stab at the presidency and he will not risk anything.
Today Mathira constituency member of parliament Rigathi Gachagua has said that Ruto is their outright leader. He further added that anyone wishing to reach the people must first pass through William Ruto. This clearly manifests how the power vacuum is costing the Agikuyu community.
