It is one of the rigions with many registered voters. To win the central electorate, a presidential candidate need to include them by choosing one of their own as a running mate.
The deputy president on his campaigns in mathira constituency asked the people to allow him take the area mp Rigathi Gachagua into national politics. The mp has been so vocal in the newly formed UDA party. This move seems to be rewarding the mp who has fallen out with President Uhuru Kenyatta who he supported in Jubilee party until he became president. Before he joined politics, he was Uhuru Kenyatta's personal assistant.
UDA party says that it will raise a nobody to somebody. Is this a move to elevate the mp from a nobody to somebody because of loyalty and defending the William Ruto after falling out with President Kenyatta? The mp has a corruption case pending in court because he could not explain how he accumulated the millions in his bank accounts. He has publicly said that the authorities are after him because of his support for William Ruto.
On the other hand William Ruto is being accused of accumulating alot of wealth since he was elected using the Uhuruto ticket. He has many parcels of land. He was also accused of his office office being used by his friend Echeza to swindle money on the gun importation deal. Will the Ruto-Gachagua ticket propel the duo to state house?
