The photos shared by the former presidential candidate could explain it all. Judging from the large crowd that had attended to listen to him, and those watching him down from their houses, it could be concluded that Musalia Mudavadi can still penetrate the region.
Nakuru county—a part of the larger Rift Valley, is perceived as William Ruto's stronghold considering based on the past elections results and the ethnic communities living in the region. But candidates from the other regions have also got their share of votes in the past, including Musalia Mudavadi when he ran for the presidential seat during the 2013's elections.
The ANC leader has stated categorically that he will be on the ballot during the 2022's presidential elections, dismissing idea of backing someone else for the Kenya's highest office.
Speaking during his tour in Nakuru, Mudavadi pointed out the issues Kenyans are passing at the moment like high taxes on commodities and high unemployment among the youth, saying if given the opportunity to serve Kenyans he will fix them.
"This evening, I interacted with the people of Nakuru Town. The journey to rebuild & grow our economy is unstoppable. My administration will not only work on lowering the high taxes but also create opportunities for our youths, create jobs & better the lives of every citizen," reported Musalia.

He added, "Watu wawe na pesa mfukoni kwa kua na Uchumi Bora. The high cost of fuel has made life more costly for our people. Parliament must re-look at the VAT Act to revise the fuel tax downward."
