Opinion: Candidate Who Will Be Affected The Most By The Low Voter Turnout In Parts of Mount Kenya

Early indications suggest that Mount Kenya has a poor voter turnout. The majority of polling places had seen significantly fewer voters today than on election day. For instance, only about 200 people had shown up by 1:00 pm at one of the 1,000-voter stations in Nyeri. Speaking to Citizen Tv, Kieni Mp Kanini Kega stated that a maximum turnout of 60% was possible.

Who, though, stands to lose the most from this low turnout in Mount Kenya? William Ruto, in my opinion, will suffer the greatest loss. To win the most recent election, Uhuru and Ruto needed support from Mount Kenya and the Rift Valley. Like they did with Uhuru, William Ruto hoped to benefit from the Mt. Kenya and Rift Valley wave, which he anticipates to reach above 90%.

In contrast, high voter turnout in Raila strongholds compared to low voter turnout in Ruto strongholds will result in an easy victory for Raila. Low voter turnout will prevent Ruto from reaching massive numbers like in 2017. The attendance was still underwhelming at the time of publication.
