Mt Kenya Residents Highly Received Azimio Leader From Mt Kenya During Today Political Rally

Deputy President William Ruto's announcement of Rigathi Gachagua has gotten significantly more attention than Raila Odinga's pick of Martha Karua as his running mate in the 2022 presidential election.

However, it is unclear whether the euphoria around the Narc Kenya leader will transfer into actual votes for Odinga's fifth presidential campaign based on two critical criteria: female votes and the Mt Kenya basket.

Karua will have a difficult time converting a traditionally hostile community to the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party, since Deputy President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance has a big advantage in the populous region. This will result in a direct contest between two running mates in the region's presidential election.The Narc Kenya leader has faced animosity from crowds chanting DP Ruto's name during her several campaigns on Mount Kenya.

Rigathi Gachagua is the Member of Parliament for the Mathira constituency in Nyeri County, where Martha Karua was today.According to images posted online by the Narc Kenya, Karua was received cordially by scores of Mt Kenya residents.

Martha Karua is running several campaigns in Mount Kenya, hoping to turn the tide against DP Ruto, who is largely regarded as the region's most popular politician.Karua began campaigning as soon as Raila Odinga's running mate for the presidential elections was revealed.
