Deputy president William Ruto has been on a series of tours in the country in bid to stem his support system ahead of 2022. General elections. Surprise to many, Ruto's visit to Nyanza region was speculated to invite a pinch of a crowd but he disapproved everyone.
Ruto pulled a mammoth of crowds in Migori who came out to cheer him. This stance has caused panic in Odinga's team as Migori is viewed as Odinga's stronghold as per 2017 general elections statistics. This is also a clear indication that Ruto has already gained grounds in Nyanza region a move that is about to make Odinga run for his money.
In the meeting, Ruto continued his bottom-up approach slogan wooing youth to board the economic reform vehicle. Among the leaders who accompanied Ruto to this campaign trail include newly appointed UDA members who've been drumming support for him in the region.
Other political activists feel that crowds don't matter but ballot do. What are your thoughts? Share your thoughts through the comments section and remember to like share and follow for more amazing updates.
