However, there is one region that is highly contested and very attractive to the politicians and that is no other than the Mount Kenya region. Politicians have mounted immense campaigns to woo the voters of the Mt.Kenya region, more than any other region.

In the 2017 General Elections, the Mt. Kenya region had a total of 5.3 million votes, which is 31 percent of the total 19.6 registered voters. With this in mind, politicians with presidential ambition are camping on the region to look for a ticket to the State House.
