Almost all 2022 presidential candidates are eyeing Mount Kenya Region for a running mate thanks to the high number of votes.
So far, Deputy President William Ruto, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper's Kalonzo Musyoka have given signals of getting their deputies from the region.
However, according to a number of political analyst, the move might backfire, in case the region feels that none of the aspiring leaders will take care of their needs, and they end up fielding their own candidate.
Through his You Tube Channel on Thursday, Political Commentator Herman Manyora alleged that he ODM leader Raila Odinga does not necessarily need the votes from Mt Kenya to win the presidency, but argued that DP William Ruto's influence can de-stabilize his hopes.
Manyora went on to argue that in any case Mt Kenya fields one of their own, the best choice for Raila's running mate will be Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.
"Other than a Kikuyu Raila would have been given by Uhuru, the most high profile person would be Joho. I would advice him to take Joho, he is a game changer. He will bring on board all Muslim votes."
