Percentage Of Votes Karua Delivered To Raila in Kirinyaga

Final results for the hotly contested presidential election pitting the deputy president William Ruto and Raila Odinga are still being tallied at Bomas by IEBC.

From the preliminary results shared by the polls agency, all form 34As from some constituencies have been delivered and tallying done.

Let's shift attention to kirinyaga county where azimio la umoja coalition party running mate hails from.

Martha Karua's county saw many seats including gubernatorial go to united democratic alliance which is led by deputy president William Ruto.

A closer look at the total number of votes that went to Raila Odinga Reveals that the azimio boss only got 37,978 votes while Ruto and Gachagwa got 220 752 votes.

This therefore means that Karua only delivered 15 percent of the total votes to Raila's Azimio la umoja coalition party.

On the other hand, Ruto's running mate Rigathi Gachagwa delivered all the six MP seats, senatorial alongside the gubernatorial seat in Nyeri county.

From the foregoing, its clear that Ruto got it right When picking his running mate. What are your views on this? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on this on our comments platform.

Here are some of the reactions online.

Ggachuule: She is the biggest scam ever…Team RO should have taken this seriously and sought out some one with vigor . Some one who could deliver. UDA outmaneuvered them and did a better job at mobilization. Incase of rerun, can someone choose another running mate 💁🏾‍♂️

2t: Not true, before she joined Azimio, a lot of ground work had been done by a dedicated team of Jubilee legislators, who mistakenly sacrificed their chances for reelection on behalf of Uhuru’s vision. Let’s give those guys their dude credit mehn!
