Mt Kenya votes have turned out to be the icing on the cake for the big boys aspiring to lead this country after President Uhuru Kenyatta's retirement.
Political heavyweights have been camped out there in an attempt to snag a piece of the high numbers.
According to the results of an opinion poll conducted by one of the Murang'a August gubernatorial aspirants, the deputy president, William Ruto, and his team have reason to smile.
Irungu Nyakera, who also served as the PS in the Ministry of Transport during Uhuru's first term in office, conducted statistical research in all seven subcounties of Murang'a county.
Out of the 601 people who took part in this poll, 459 said they would vote for William Ruto to be Kenya's next president.
Raila Odinga, the leader of the ODM party, received 47 votes, while Mudavadi and Kalonzo received 18 and 6 votes, respectively. Other than the four candidates mentioned, 71 voters said they would vote for someone else.
The Gatanga constituency had the highest number of respondents in this survey. There were 115 people from the sub-county who took part, with 100 of them saying they would vote for Ruto.
This is encouraging news for Ruto and his team. However, it is said that politics is a dynamic game in which anything can change in a short period of time.
