Political analyst Herman Manyora has observed that Raila’s rising popularity in Mt Kenya should worry Ruto and his allies. Manyora says that Ruto and his running mate need the Mt Kenya votes than any other presidential candidate because that is the region where they can get votes. However, Raila’s rising popularity in the populous region could easily dethrone Ruto from the huge support that he has enjoyed over the years.

According to Manyora, the winner of the August 9th elections will be decided in Mt Kenya. Manyora says that 30 percent for Raila will be a big win for Ruto but anything more than will be disastrous to Kenya Kwanza and DP Ruto.

“The only reason Ruto will be safe will be when is when he gets more than 60 percent. However, what I see is Raila getting 40 percent and Ruto getting 60 percent, and that will be bad for Ruto’s journey. The August 9th elections will be decided by the Mt Kenya people. The person Mt Kenya people will vote for will carry the day,” Manyora has said.

Ruto has been enjoying huge support from Mt Kenya right after the 2017 general elections. The DP has made numerous visits to Mt Kenya and he has made a number of friends but since Raila started visiting the area.

While speaking during an interview in K24 TV, Manyora has said that in case Ruto loses he will be hardest hit because he has put more into the campaigns than Raila. Mt Kenya votes going to Raila’s side will be a huge shock as he has made it seem like Mt Kenya is his second home.
