Why Mt Kenya Region Is Holding Ruto Hostage

Deputy President William Ruto has had a significant rise in his political clout in the Mt Kenya region. This has been evident in the recent wins by UDA in the region even in President Uhuru Kenyatta's backyard. But the Mt Kenya region takes up so much of his time and political influence that other regions may start to feel disenfranchised. The Deputy President has even declared publicly that his presidency will be decided in Mt Kenya.

It is very interesting that the region which has thrown it's might behind Dr. Ruto has abandoned the Jubilee slogan commonly known as "thuti" which refers to the fact that on election Day vote for Jubilee from top to bottom or rather from the presidency to the MCA and every position in between.

We will be watching carefully what the opposition response will be. Will they have an answer for Dr. Ruto's growing political might in the region or will the opposition galvanize the rest of the country and cause Mt. Kenya region to be the catalyst for him losing the Presidency next year.
