Region In Rift Valley Where Raila Might Beat Ruto

In the Rift Valley, where the general election is just hours away, things might change for both Dr. William Ruto, the region's powerful leader, and the deputy president of Kenya.

A region in Kenya is thought to be the main bastion of the United Democratic Alliance's affiliate parties, the Kwanza Alliance, and is thought to be the vice president's backyard. Is his hometown rejecting the master? Voters' political suspicions have been increased by Uasin Gishu county, where Mr. Odinga, the Azimio presidential candidate, is thought to have a chance of defeating Dr. Ruto in his home county.

The county is diverse and has a large population, which will alter voting behavior in the Turbo constituency, a subcounty in the county with the greatest number of registered voters.

By working with the incumbent senator, Prof. Margret Kamar, and the deputy speaker of the upper house, who dropped her bid for the governorship, Mr. Raila was able to defeat Ruto in his home county.
