Tolgos dismissed Ruto's grip on the rift as a fallacy while narrowing his focus on the north rift area, and when he joined former priest Sally Kosgey at an energetic event in Eldoret on Sunday for Azimio running-mate Martha Karua, he found more reasons to clump down on Ruto.
Karua, a Raila rising star, is in charge of Odinga's missions in the area, according to Kosgey and Tolgos, and will reap huge political dividends.
It's safe to assume that this location isn't yet anyone's fortress, given the kind of gathering Karua has been given. Odinga received about 25% last time, but Tolgos predicts that by August 9, he will have accumulated more than 40%.
Rails has the support of four Rift Valley leaders: Tolgos, John Longyangapuo of West Pokot, Joseph Ole Lenku of Kajiado, and Lee Kinyanjui of Nakuru. Among those who assisted Karua were previous collaborator Stephen Tarus, CAS Linah Kilimo, congressman Kipkorir Menjo, MCAs Ramadhan Ali and Francis Muya, and Turbo MP candidate Samkiz Mugs of the ODM.
According to Azimio pioneers, Karua had a fantastic journey into Eldoret on Sunday, where she was greeted warmly, and with that, Raila is on the rise following the massive gathering held at Huruma Grounds.
According to Tolgos, the occupants understand the importance of choosing a responsible pioneer who is willing to serve the country. According to experts, Karua's successful visit will sway a few votes in Raila's favor.
Odinga is the only one who has boundaries and the ability to solve problems that our ranchers have been looking for. According to Tolgos, those others are the source of the problems.
Tolgos is running against incumbent Senator Kipchumba Murkomen for the Senate seat in Elgeyo Marakwet, and he predicts a close race.
Dr. Kosgey recently worked with Rails and Karua and sees them as pioneers capable of liberating Kenyans from the currency debasement that has ruined the economy.
I'm familiar with Odinga and Karua in general. They are the safe hands the country requires, according to Kosgey, because they hold the country's fate so dearly in their hearts.
