Over the last ten years of election in Kenya, Western Kenya has been drumming up Odinga's bid with majority of votes. Odinga's popularity in Western was pushed by Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula who were part of NASA coalition in 2013 and 2017 general election.
Raila's support seems to be deteriorating after the exit of two high ranking politicians in Western to United Democratic Alliance party of the deputy president William Ruto. Mr. Ruto has gained more of Western region dictating more members of parliament to the coalition.
The Deputy President has already persuaded the Western region with a 30 percent of the government share. Both Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula are assured of Chief minister and speaker of the Senate with majority of ministers respectively.
