It looks like Raila Odinga and William Ruto will have a fiercely contested general election. They both plan to win more than 5 million votes, thus they are selecting running mates from the Mount Kenya area. When compared to other regions, the two had traveled through this one quite a few times. It is speculated, however, that Martha Karua will be more helpful to Raila than Rigathi Gachagua will be to Ruto.
DP Ruto has said that the upcoming election would be rigged in Raila Odinga's favor. His journey to the UK allowed him to spread the word there as well. He is not as troubled by Raila as she is by the thorny subject of a manual backup voting register.
Raila Odinga is spending a second day on Mount Kenya. He has declared that there will be no election if a paper backup register is not available. Wafula Chebukati has been meeting with Ruto, according to Azimio. His information suggests that marked ballots could be smuggled in from Uganda. As for Raila, he has demanded an explanation from the IEBC on the rumored meetings.
