President Uhuru Kenyatta sparked a mixed reactions yesterday after hinting that he may support Raila Odinga in the upcoming general election despite his deputy backing him for the two terms. During the opening of hospital in Kibra hospital yesterday Kenyatta claimed that he will continue working with Raila Odinga. in a YouTube video by Inooro TV Uhuru Kenyatta can be heard praising Odinga for his support and asking whether that isn't what they wanted.President Kenyatta's remarks has a serious implications to DP William Ruto's presidential ambitions as he needed him most to secure the votes from Mt Kenya region that is very rich in votes.
If Uhuru will manage to woo all the voters in the region to back Odinga then it will be very hard for DP William Ruto to secure the top seat in the land. Another challenge that DP Ruto faces with less than one year remaining to general election is to convince people from other regions that supported them last time that he can perform best in absence of his boss support.
