While attending Martha Karua's Azimio la Umoja meeting recently in Eldoret town, Tolgos said the region's kingpin William Ruto had lost solid ground in the Rift Valley and that over 40% of the votes from the region will go to Azimio la Umoja basket in August.

“From the kind of reception Karua has been given, it's clear this region is no longer anyone's stronghold. Last time Odinga got about 25 per cent but come August 9, he will amass more than 40 per cent," said Tolgos at Huruma grounds Eldoret.
