Pius Kinuthia, the Orange Democratic Movement party Muran'ga senatorial candidate, has admitted that deputy president Wiliam Ruto's rating in the Mount Kenya region is higher than that of the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party presidential flagbearer Raila Odinga.
The youthful politician acknowledged Ruto's popularity in the region that is being perceived as the determinant of the next president, however, he noted that Raila's national rating is higher than that of Ruto expressing confidence that the former prime minister will win the presidency in the August polls.
"The TRUTH is that Ruto’s ratings are slightly higher in Mt Kenya BUT NOT in the entire country. Baba’s ratings are at around 58% countrywide. Kenyans are saying BABA TOSHA and Ruto NGOJA!" He posted on his official social media pages.
This comes even as both Raila and Ruto continue popularising their bids in the region with the former visiting the region today. Raila has the backing of a few leaders including president Uhuru Kenyatta as Ruto enjoys the support of most elected leaders.
