In the recent past, questions have arisen if Uhuru Kenyatta still has control of Mt Kenya region. This is mainly due to the existence of a strong Tangatanga faction which seems to command a huge following. The region have also demonstrated open reluctance to embracing Uhuru as one of them since the handshake happened.
Another scenario that increases the speculations of Uhuru losing ground in Mt Kenya is due to the crowds that William Ruto has been pulling. Last year when the head of state visited Nyeri county, only a few people welcomed him unlike Ruto who pulls a mammoth crowd.
Speaking at Inooro TV, Wanjiku said that she could not understand why people were still neglecting president Uhuru and instead, opted for Ruto. She alluded that Uhuru has initiated mega development projects in the region, and it is sad to see the beneficiaries turning out to be the president's biggest attackers.
"Although I belong to the handshake team, it's important I talk how the real situation is on the ground. Most people are following William Ruto and are no longer listening to the president. Let me warn you that one day you will remember president Uhuru," alluded Wanjiku.
However, the upcoming Juja by-election will prove who has the ground control in the area. The president earlier proved his might after he managed to whip the region MCAs to supporting BBI. At first the report had gotten outright opposition but after the Sagana meeting, the MCAs agreed to pass the bill.
