DP Ruto Wins Big in Mt Kenya as Raila Also Gets Endorsement by Over 30 Governors

ODM chief Hon Raila Odinga today received another big boost for his presidential bid ahead of the August 9 polls. In today's showdown of political muscles, Raila received a backing of over 30 governors who pledged to ensure that Raila ascends to the top seat.

While addressing the media from a Naivasha Hotel, the leaders present said that it's now their duty to go to the grassroot and sell Raila to the electorates.

While Raila was busy at Naivasha, his close political rival, Deputy President William Ruto was also busy in Kiambu where he met with several leaders from the county as he continues to woo the residents and leaders to support his presidential bid.

Taking to his Twitter account, the second in command released a list of leaders who are looking to try their luck in politics under the UDA ticket.

"Met a group of leaders from Kiambu and Murang’a counties who included aspirants among them Mrs Ann Muratha (Kiambu Women Representative), Esther Gathogo (Ruiru), Mr Njenga Murugami (Limuru), Anthony Maina Wa Maii (Mathioya) and Peter Kihungi (Kangema)." Tweeted the DP.
