Miguna Predicts Winner Will Bag 70 Percent Of Votes

Following the August 9 general elections, Miguna Miguna, an exiled lawyer, has repeated his former position that Deputy President William Ruto will be the republic's fifth president.

Miguna noted in an interview with KDRTV that, based on public information, the second in command boasts of a sizable vote basket in the high-vote Mount Kenya region, which is a significant advantage in his presidential candidacy.

According to the former Raila Odinga ally, he calculated that if elections were held today, Ruto would defeat Raila by a 70 to 30% margin.

Miguna warns that discounting Ruto's power in Mount Kenya would be foolish, claiming that the DP now controls close to 75% of the region, as evidenced by his recent victories in by-elections in the region.

He also cites the influx of experienced politicians such as William Kabogo, Moses Kuria, Senator Wamatangi, and Ferdinand Waititu to Kenya Kwanza as another source of contention for Raila.

Miguna also points out that Raila Odinga has lost several of his strongholds, including Nairobi and the Coast, and that the votes in Nairobi could be evenly split between Ruto and Mudavadi, owing to their influence.
