As ODM party leader Rila Odinga continues to make inroads in central Kenya, he is swaying supporters to his side, as a result, the deputy president is quickly losing those he had won to his camp. His narrative that Odinga was pork and was unsellable is now behind the political space.
According to Uhuru Kenyatta's die-hard supporter and blogger Pauline Njoroge William Ruto's support base from central Kenya has reduced from 85% in January to 61% in October. According to her, this is a great milestone for Odinga. She believes as time goes, Odinga will continue to grab Ruto's supporters for his camp.
"From an approval rating of 85% in Mt. Kenya in January 2021 to a rating of 61% in early October 2021. Kweli, Vindu vichenjanga! ," Njoroge posted.
Central Kenya is a region of contention amongst presidential aspirants, the rich vote basket region has no presidential aspirants of their own as Uhuru Kenyatta's two-term limit lapse. During the 2013 campaigns, they agreed with deputy president William Ruto 'Kumi Yangu na Kumi ya Ruto". The two broke ties after the handshake with Raia Odinga.
