Ruto Suffers Blow After Latest Report Revealed No. of Governors Supporting Him Compared to Raila

Deputy President William Ruto and his allies have suffered a setback in the 2022 statehouse race. Ruto is looking forward to become Kenya’s first ever Vice President to become president faces a tough opposition from ODM Leader Raila.

The two are among Kenya’s most experienced politicians and are expected to put a show down in 2022 where only one will emerge the winner.

However, Raila has been given a boost after a report showed that he has the backing of at least 17 governors while Ruto only has 10.

The report further indicates that the governors supporting Raila are widespread in counties whereas Ruto’s supporters are only from the Rift Valley backyard.

The backing of the county governors is a boost to any politician especially because they command huge numbers from their counties and most likely will influence majority if not all voters to vote for their preferred candidate.

ANC party boss Musalia Mudavadi and his Kanu counterpart Gideon Moi have the backing of one governor each, whereas 16 governors are yet to choose a side.
