Karua's Tactical Move That Will Likely Actualize Maina Kamanda's Prediction About DP Ruto

One of the historic event scheduled to take place in August is the swearing in of the country's fifth president, who will the chosen one be? Time will ultimately tell.

Hitherto, 55 presidential aspirants have expressed their desires to unseat Kenyatta II and steer the country between 2022 and 2027. Out of the many, political telescopes are orbiting between Kenya Kwanza head William Ruto and his Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Coalition counterpart Raila Odinga who have time and again watermarked themselves as the frontrunners.

According to the latest opinion poll, 39% of Kenyan voters are looking forward to cast their lots on Raila with 35% gravitating towards DP Ruto. From these stats, it's probable that the veteran may be the next wearer of the coveted presidential crown come August.

In one of his previous media discourses, nominated Member of Parliament (MP) Main a Kamanda exuded confidence that Jakom will be Uhuru's imminent heir but for that to happen, he (Raila) must at least get 35% of Mt Kenya votes.

Mt Kenya is a vote-rich political hub with millions of votes and since time immemorial the presidential crown goes to whoever gets a large pie of the region's votes. With the D-day fast approaching, the big ask is; will Raila get 35%? 

In what seems to be a daring move to increase Raila's ratings in Mt Kenya region, Narc-Kenya leader and Kieleweke lieutenants have embarked on a vigorous campaigns in the region and this move will expectedly pay off.

For the last three days, Raila's running mate and her troupe have traversed in several counties within the region namely Kirinyaga, Meru and Nyeri and this has sent shivers to Ruto's camp. According to the last poll, Ruto has 49% of area support and Karua's daring move will verily complicate Ruto matrix.
