The national elections in August are only a few months away. Various figures are vying for different seats in the next general elections, but the presidential seat is expected to be a two-horse contest between Deputy President William Ruto and Raila Amollo Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement. The two have been touring the country, announcing their political candidacy to the public and attempting to capture the vote-rich region of Mount Kenya.
One of Ruto's allies has made a statement that has sparked a lot of discussions online. Gladys Shollei claimed that Raila Odinga, as Kenyans know him, never works in a boardroom and that when he goes to Uhuru Park, it gets crowded.
Many Kenyans reacted to Shollei's comments online, with others informing her that Raila has changed his political strategy and that they should expect to lose in the August general elections. Others advised her to refrain from making Raila the subject of conversation at all times. Some Kenyans' reactions are listed below.
