After the Court of Appeal upheld the judgement by the High Court that the BBI process was illegal, political leaders who were inclined to it have been send to the drawing board, on how they will align themselves or next year's general elections.
Mount Kenya Region has attracted interests of almost all presidential aspirants, but this might be a challenge for anyone who wants to win the support of the vote-rich region.
section of Mt Kenya leaders yesterday noted that it will also be possible for them to field their own candidate, a move that Political Analyst Charles Njoroge claims will give Murang'a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria an upper hand.
Speaking with the Standard, Njoroge stated that the second term governor who has since announced his interest for the top seat through Usawa Kwa Wote Party knows to engage voters, and there is no doubt that the residents of Mount Kenya Region will support him with a bigger per cent.
"Anybody will ignore Iria at their own peril. "The governor takes himself to places without being pushed by brokers. He will surprise many towards the end of this election campaign with the backing he will get from Mt Kenya residents," said Njoroge.
Wa Iria yesterday dismissed the ongoing group meetings of leaders across the region, stating that they had started early campaigns yet they were not ready to tell residents to register as voters.
