Ruto Suffers Major Blow, Several Rift Valley Professionals Join Raila's Camp

The deputy President William Ruto has suffered a major blow ahead of the August 9th polls which is only 37 days away. Several professionals from the Rift Valley region more so in Elgeyo Marakwet have joined Raila's camp and endorsed his statehouse bid ambitions.

The professionals in their numbers are clear it's only Raila Odinga who will change the fortunes of Rift Valley region for the better and end banditry. According to the professional who were led my Deputy Speaker in the senate, Margeret Kamar and Governor Alex Telgos have decided to back Raila Odinga.

The love by the professionals has really left William Ruto in a bad position given Rift Valley region is considered to be his political backyard. It's however unlikely that the professional will get votes Azimio given the region enjoys a total of Ruto's support.

It's however a blow to Ruto in that he wouldn't want to lose a single vote from his community into Azimio. Ruto is obviously keen in consolidation of his votes to ensure the region not only voted for him but does so in their huge numbers hence today news are indeed bad.
