President Uhuru has been trying to gain grip of his vote rich Mt Kenya Backyard ahead of the 2022 general elections.
The region has been restless and divided and could risk being divided in 2022 for the first time after it has always voted as bloc in previous elections.
Leaders in the region have been divided with others owing their allegiance to him and others to his Deputy Ruto.
Key allies of Ruto have however been alleging that the Ruto has a bigger following in the region compared to Uhuru.
This has been leading to queries on what Uhuru could have done to his own backyard that his said to be unpopular.
Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua who is also a key ally of DP Ruto has finally revealed why Uhuru is unpopular in the Mountain region.
Speaking to the Star, Rigathi has alleged that the main reason why Uhuru is unpopular in Gema is due to his new found relationship with Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
According to Rigathi, Uhuru's biggest blunder was to allow Raila into the government and this has not been taken well by the people in the region who are known to be opposed to the Former Prime Minister.
