Experts Reveal How Ruto, Raila Will Benefit From President Tour To Nyanza.

After receiving a cordial welcome and embrace from the leaders and citizens of the Nyanza Region, President William Ruto's two-day official visit has been hailed as a success.

Before visiting Kisumu and Siaya Counties, where he was welcomed and hosted by Governor Anyang Nyong'o and James Orengo, Ruto visited Homa Bay County, where he was hosted by Governor Gladys Wanga and Senator Moses Kajwang among others.

Additionally, he had the chance to meet with the governor of Migori, Ochilo Ayacko, and other top Migori officials.

The leaders who spoke during the two-day tour gave the president their assurance that, despite being in the former prime minister Raila Odinga's Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp, they would cooperate closely with the Kenya Kwanza Government to advance development in their respective counties.

Raila reportedly urged the leaders—the majority of whom were chosen under the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party—to support the president and outline their demands for the federal government.

Political analyst Mark Bichache was quoted by the Nation on Tuesday as saying that the trip is advantageous to both Raila and Ruto.

According to Bichache, Ruto has established a positive rapport with the locals who could provide him with advice.

The president is aware that he must seek reelection. He needs support from many different communities in order to be re-elected and gain legitimacy. The cease-fire also gives Raila the impression of being a statesman who can put politics aside for the benefit of his people's progress and development, according to Bichache.
