Raila Odinga and Dp Ruto are in a battle of fighting for the Nairobi votes which are unpredictable at the moment for every candidate is using a different strategy to ensure he garners majority of votes.
On Tuesday Raila Odinga while launching a campaign to mobilize Nairobi residents revealed that he will get over 1.6m votes from the region having added the 700,000 votes that Uhuru got plus his 900,000 to his advantage.
"I got over 900,000 votes in the last election, President Uhuru got 700,000. Cumulatively we got over 1.6 million votes. In the coming elections we will get more," Raila Odinga said.
His statement has however received threats by political experts and analyst as revealed by the Nation Media Group Publication through the Taifa Leo newspaper. According to the report, Raila Odinga is at a risky of being defeated by Ruto in Nairobi votes if he will stick to his earlier speech this is because the votes Uhuru got (700,000) for now has been subdivided to Ruto among other politicians and in consideration of how the politics have changed in the past days.
"Wadadisi wanasema kauli ya Odinga kuwa atarithi kura zote alizopata Uhuru 2017 ni hesabu inayoweza kumharibia. Hii ni Kwa sababu kura alizopata Rais Uhuru 2017 Kwa sasa zimegawika baina ya viongozi huyo wa nchi na Naibu wake Dkt William Ruto, mbali na mazingira ya kisiasa kubadilika pakubwa," the report from Taifa Leo read.
This is a warning to Raila to keep fighting and mobilizing Nairobi residents to support his bid and not to relax his political muscles as Ruto may use this chance to get more votes from the region.
