As United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader William Ruto looks forward to fire his first presidential shot, he is staking on a number of political parameters among them is the Western Kenya factor.
The aforenamed region has a total sum of 2.2 million registered votes and this statistically means this vote-rich hub will partly determine who between the self-declared chief hustler and Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Coalition party head will occupy the house on the hill top come August.
To have the region's fair share of votes, Ruto has coalesced two notable political figures from the region namely Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetangula (Ford-Kenya), the duo have since promised to deliver at least 70% of area votes to Samoei's political basket.
Now that the country is barely 43 days away from August poll, will Mudavadi's 70% promise suffice? Oh well, not exactly, according to the outgoing Kakamega county boss, Ruto stands no chance to get the said score in Western Kenya, reason? The region is solidly behind ex-Nasa chief principal Raila Odinga.
Through his official Facebook page, Wycliffe Operanya called Kenya Kwanza troupe to tame their expectations about their scores in the region. Oparanya has for the last three days pitched tent in Western region to popularize Raila Odinga's Inawezekana gospel.
