Few weeks ago, Orange Democratic party leader, Hounerable Raila Odinga together with his allied leaders toured coastal region, with an aim of selling Azimio La Umoja drive to the people. Surprisingly, several governors in the region failed to attend his meetings, raising questions what was happening. Mombasa county governor, Hounerable Ali Hassan Joho clarified that he was out of the country during that time hence couldn't attend the event.
Well, today, Kwale County governor Hounerable Salim Mvurya has welcomed Deputy president William Ruto to his county. Taking to his social media account, the governor has reported that Ruto was around for an event which is linked to a church development. Is this an indication that Salim is in United Democratic party? Well, he has not yet declared but from Msambweni by election where he defeated Orange democratic party Candidate with an independent Candidate, it is a clear message that he might finally support Ruto instead of Raila Odinga.

Orange democratic party leader Hounerable Raila Odinga is fighting to take control of the region that he has been enjoying support from it for many years. Recently, he lost Kilifi County governor, Hounerable Amason Kingi who formed his own party. This is ablow to him since he is forced to search for new allies ahead of 2022 general election. He is now banking on governor Joho to deliver coast region votes come 2022.
The second in Command on the other hand is working so hard to win over regions which has been supporting Odinga in the past elections. He has intensified his Campaigns in Western, lower Nyanza and coast region where he is so determined to make a mark.

Ruto is receiving allies from Mount Kenya region who are decamping from Jubilee Party ahead of next year's general election. He is banking on them to deliver over five million votes from central region, something that will deal his presidency dream and maybe make him be the fifth president of the republic of Kenya. Well, let's wait and see how things will play out soon.
