Ruto Suffers Blow After Latest Reports Reveals The Number Of Gov'rs Supporting Him Compared To Raila

In the race for the statehouse in 2022, Deputy President William Ruto and his allies have been defeated. Ruto, who aspires to be Kenya's first Vice President to become President, will face stiff opposition from ODM leader Raila Odinga.

They are two of Kenya's most experienced politicians, and they are expected to put on a show in 2022, with only one winner.

Raila, on the other hand, has received a boost after a report revealed that he has the support of at least 17 governors, compared to only 10 for Ruto.

According to the report, governors who support Raila are widespread across counties, whereas Ruto's supporters are limited to the Rift Valley.

The support of county governors is advantageous to any politician, particularly because they command large numbers of voters in their respective counties and are likely to persuade the majority, if not all, of those voters to vote for their preferred candidate.

Musalia Mudavadi, the ANC party's leader, and Gideon Moi, the Kanu party's leader, each have one governor's support, while 16 governors have yet to choose a side.
