Why Mount Kenya Region Is Important In The Presidential Race

The 2022 Presidential race is getting more difficult with each passing day. With Ruto and Raila running around the country selling their political narratives to the netizens.

Mount Kenya region for the longest time has been known to be giving out their votes in a block. This has made every presidential politician seek their votes. This especially has been witnessed by Ruto and his political rival Raila Odinga.

However, Experienced politicians and Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga might find it challenging to climb Mount Kenya because there hasn't been even a single Governor from the region who has defected from the Jubilee Government to join his ODM party while a few Governors have ditched Jubilee to join UDA.

With Presidential Candidates increasing by the day, the latest being Jimmy Kibaki, son of the retired President, the mountain region votes continue to become more divided hence making it difficult for one person to claim to be holding more numbers in the region.
