Reason Why Uhuru Must Ensure Ruto's UDA Doesn't win Kiambaa Mini-poll

Officially the outcome of the Kiambaa Constituency by-election will determine the electoral contest between the Jubilee Party's candidate Kariri Njama and United Democratic Alliance's candidate John Njuguna on who will fill the vacant seat occasioned by the death of MP Paul Koinange in March.

For Jubilee Party, anything short of a landslide victory in the heartland of its political base will be a loss.

The crux of the matter is best captured in this question: Why should the outcome of Kiambaa Constituency matter to the people of Central Kenya and to the rest of the country?

According to an article on the Standard Newspaper, if DP Ruto' UDA clinches victory in the by-election, Kiambaa is likely to be the first headquarters of the Hustler Nation. This will be a big boost to DP Ruto's presidential bid.

"The point here is: if UDA emerges victorious in next Thursday's by-election then Kiambaa Constituency would be first political headquarters of the Hustler Nation," the newspaper reads.

The Jubilee candidate will have to win to guarantee President Uhuru's grip on the Agikuyu which seems to be slipping away as 2022 edges closer.
