Several political leaders have embarked on their campaigns for the 2022 General elections. The Presidential race has got leaders like Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga work hard to get more support from several regions in the country and boost their chances of getting to State House.
The two top leaders have been concentrating more on the Mt Kenya region which boasts of slightly more that five million registered voters who will boost any aspirant to winning the race. Deputy President William Ruto begun his campaigns earlier, but it seems like Raila Odinga is set to outwit him to getting more support from the region, as per the Star.
Governor Muriithi told the Star that the firm support that Raila Odinga is getting from President Uhuru Kenyatta's allies has boosted his odds of winning over the Mt Kenya region support, unlike some years ago when he was demonized in the same region.
"Those who said Raila will not limb the mountain are in for a rude shock, the Raila presidency is at the foot of yonder.
If you look at the efforts we have made in the last few weeks, compared to what others did in the last eight years to project themselves as Mt Kenya favourites, Raila is headed to State House." Murithi stated.
Several Mt Kenya leaders have been accompanying Raila Odinga to various meetings he has held in Nakuru, Kiambu, Nyeri, Murang’a, Laikipia, Embu and Meru counties which turned out to be a huge success.
Should this worry Deputy President William Ruto?
