Reasons Why Mt Kenya Governors Have Been Speaking In Mother Tongue While With Raila Finally Revealed

New information has emerged about some of the devious tactics employed by ODM leader Raila Odinga's Mt Kenya allies in their bid to seize control of the region.

He has expressed a strong interest in the elections in Central Kenya and the Upper East, which analysts believe will have a significant impact on who becomes the next President.

Area governors have been among those leading his campaigns, as well as hosting and accompanying him to campaign rallies.

It appears that addressing their people in their mother tongue is one of their strategies for persuading them by making them appear closer to them.

The Star has learned that this strategy is used to connect with the people by Lee Kinyanjui of Nakuru and Nderitu Muriithi of Laipikia while in the company of Raila.

Raila is penetrating the region and succeeding in scaling the mountain ahead of the awaited polls, according to Muriithi, who told the paper that their efforts are paying off.

"At first, critics dismissed Raila's attempts to penetrate the Mt Kenya region, but the last few months have forced them to reconsider. Baba (Raila) has climbed the mountain." He said.
