The former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has been dealt a major blow in the Mt. Kenya region after one of the Jubilee governors, whom have supported him and saved from the axe, hinted on joining the UDA party. Governor Ann Waiguru while being received by the Kirinyanga people hinted on joining a party that would make her be reelected. She asked the crowd which party they would like her to join and they chanted the UDA party name.
Mt. Kenya region is one of the regions with the highest number of registered voters and any politician vying for the presidential seat, would do all that it takes to win votes from the regions as this will give him a gate way to the seat. In the recent past since the fall out in the Jubilee party, there has been a division in the region with one side supporting the president and the other side supporting the newly formed UDA party which belongs to the deputy president.
Politicians have been trying to visit the region in an attempt grab all the votes from the region and these include the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, the deputy president William Ruto and the One Kenya Alliance coalition leaders.
With Waiguru shifting to another party, this would deal Hon. Raila a great blow even as he looks to seek vote from the region.
