Celebrations have rocked Raila's camp this morning after a group of more than 13 grassroot leaders allied to the UDA and ANC which form the Kenya Kwanza have ditched the coalition and joined Azimio One Kenya.
According to sources, the Elgeyo Marakwet govenor Alex Tolgos led a delegation of more than 13 leaders who were previously supporting Ruto's presidential bid in joining the Azimio One Kenya coalition.
"Leo tumekaribisha viongozi wengi kutoka ANC na pia tuko na vijana kutoka chama ya UDA ambao wamejiunga na Azimio,"
"sisi tuko na furaha kwa sababu tunajua masiku zinazidi kuyoyoma na ni wakati wetu wa kuingia kila kona sehemu hii kuweza kutafutia baba na mama kura," Tolgos said while receving the defectors.
With less than 41 days to general elections, this is a huge blow to William Ruto State House bid as he just held and signed a charter yesterday night with the youths event which was held at Nyayo stadium.
The above move is likely to cost him votes as today's defectors are from his vote rich region Riftvalley and add more vote to his competitor Raila Odinga.
