Political heavyweights are on a mission to strew the entire country seeking votes ahead of the August 9, 2023 elections.
The issue of swing votes has also come into the picture bringing with it the thrust to dismantle opponents influence in their respective strongholds.
In the recent past, Mr Ruto has been going deep into the enemy lines and selling his hustler narrative. His reception in perceived Raila Odinga's strongholds hasn't been foul, a clear indication that the presidential race is destined to intensify as we trod closer to the August 9 General Election.
Today the Deputy President landed in Latheka Kitui in yet another of his tour into the Ukambani turf. His entry was highly sought after and upon arriving, Mr Ruto was received with melodies and gladness.
Thereafter, his security ring scanned the area for any security loopholes subsequently allowing the Deputy President to come in close contact with the gathering, greeting nearly 100 of them.
DP Ruto was warm and happy with every greeting, careful inquiring about everyone's whereabouts.
This kind of reception is among the many things that envy the State to push Uhuru's deputy to the bitter wall. It's clear that President Uhuru Kenyatta would feel jealous upon seeing how Ruto was welcomed in Kitui.
Hindsight reminds us of the annoyance from State after Mr Ruto continuously held meetings in his official residence. In response, political commentators claimed that Ruto's move would envy the state for the undertakings of his Karen Residence reflects that of the Statehouse.
