If These Statistics Are To Go By, William Ruto May Get 70% Of Luhya Votes Come The Elections

The general elections are around the corner and presidential aspirants are doing all they can to convince Kenyans to give them their votes.This is especially in the highly populated and vote rich regions of Mount Kenya,Rift Valley And Western Kenya.With both Raila and Ruto picking running mates from Mount Kenya,it is safe to say they will share the votes from the region.Ruto has Rift Valley behind his back which now leaves Western Kenya as the deciding region as they have no one vying for either the top seat or running mate position.Raila's ODM party has for long had so much influence in the region but with Luhya leaders Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula with Ruto,this might change.In Trans Nzoia,only one Member of Parliament belongs to ODM while five are in Wetangula's Ford Kenya and Mudavadi's ANC.In Kakamega, two are from ODM while twelve are from Ford Kenya and ANC.In Bungoma,ODM has no Member of Parliament while Ford and ANC have eight.In Busia,ODM has five while Ford and ANC have seven.If these statistics are to go by,then Ruto's target of getting 70% of the Luhya votes will be achievable.
