The Mt Kenya region have for a long time been perceived to be a Ruto's stronghold. This is due to the many politicians from the region who have been Ruto's foot soldiers. The influential politicians were the founder of the now famous Tangatanga faction of the ruling Jubilee party. These leaders have been rallying support behind his 2022 presidential quest.

They had managed to convince the residents to stick to Uhuru's kumi kumi promise, that would see the region support Ruto in the next polls. With this, the deputy president has been attracting mammoth crowds during his visits in the region. This image is what have given people a perception that Uhuru's support has been diminishing while that of Ruto escalate.

However, things now seem to be taking a different route. Ruto appeared to publicly differ with the BBI report, and many expected that his support base will reject the BBI bill. Mt Kenya region that has been perceived his support base has endorsed the BBI bill as directed by president Uhuru. There wasn't any opposition during the BBI debate and most assemblies unanimously agreed to pass the bill.

This happened despite the vocal Ruto die-hards from the region who have been opposing BBI. Murang'a and Nyeri counties are among the counties that passed the bill. Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua, is one of Ruto's close allies who have been opposing BBI. However, his influence didn't reflect in the county assembly of Nyeri.

Infact after the bill was passed by the MCAs, Mathira residents flocked the streets of Karatina town with placards showing their support for the BBI. The residents also went ahead and asked their MP to respect president Uhuru Kenyatta.

President Uhuru's meeting at the Sagana state lodge seems to have started bearing fruits. The region has started to solidly rally behind him, while Ruto's influence seem to be diminishing.
