After Deputy president William Ruto teamed up with ANC and Ford Kenya parties under Kenya Kwanza Alliance, DP Ruto's popularity has grown in Western Kenya ahead of the August polls. However, Raila Odinga still has some considerable support in the region.
Deputy President William Ruto's ally has indirectly admitted that the ODM Party Leader Hon Raila Odinga's 2022 Presidential bid is gaining popularity in the Western region, even though the Kenya Kwanza Alliance Formation includes Amani National Congress Party Leader Hon Musalia Mudavadi and FORD Kenya Party Leader Hon Moses Wetangula.
According to the Nation paper, a UDA ally expressed regret that, despite the two senior leaders' abandonment of Raila, they are still facing nightmares in the region, which has over 2.7 million votes according to 2017 data.
