Political analyst and commentator from the University of Nairobi department of linguistics professor Herman Manyora has shared his views on the effect that the presidential election results may have on Kakamega and Mombasa gubernatorial races. It should be remembered that gubernatorial elections in these counties will be held on August 23rd, long after the announcement of Statehouse winner.
According to Professor Herman Manyora, the top racers in both gubernatorial battles will suffer in one way or another if their respective principals ( Ruto, Raila ) lose the Statehouse race.
According to Manyora the winner of the Statehouse race will determine the coalition or candidates who win in two races. According to Manyora, should the deputy president William Ruto win the statehouse race, then Azimio governor aspirant in Kakamega Fernandes Barasa will lose terribly. In essence, Malalah may win if Ruto wins statehouse race. On the other hand, Barasa will have an easy ride to victory should Raila win the Statehouse race.
" If Raila wins then we forget about Malalah, he will go home," said Manyora.
Similarly in Mombasa, Manyora opined that Azimio's aspirant Abdulswamad Nassir will have difficult time competing the UDA candidate should Ruto win the statehouse race. "Abdulswamad will lose if Rails loses," said Manyora.
