(A group of politicians at the Mount Kenya region.)
There are less than 10 months before Kenyans go to the ballot and vote for new leaders in the August, 2022. The politicians who are aspiring to be the next president are touring across all regions of Kenya to woo voters.
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.
This is the first time since 1992 that the Mt. Kenya region lacking a strong presidential candidate, who is based on the region and that is why the region has become a battleground for outsiders, who are seeking the 2022 presidency.
