How Ruto Reacted When Over 800 Tangatanga Allies Showed up in His Karen Residence

Presidential contenders are making each day count as they remain focused on winning votes ahead of the 2022 elections.

The vote-rich Mt Kenya region is eyed by all the presidential hopefuls. In the past month, we've seen ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka taking to Uhuru's turf in search of votes.

Bigwigs like ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto understand that the region will give them the push they desire to become President. Just like political scientists table it, whoever will have massive support from Uhuru's backyard will be better footed in ascending to the apex seat.

As it stands, Governor James Nyoro (Kiambu), Nderitu Muriithi (Laikipia), Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru) and Francis Kimemia of Nyandarua county have promised to rally the region to support Raila's bid.

However, Mr Ruto appears determined to take the top seat despite recent developments from the handshake wing. 

While speaking in his Karen Residence, the second in command was visibly happy after more than 800 allies of the Tangatanga flocked the venue. Addressing the scene, Uhuru's deputy expressed joy saying that the hustler movement has gone against the expectations of many by becoming the largest movement in Kenya.

DP Ruto is of the idea that Kenyan hustlers are all backing him in his chase to succeed President Uhuru.
