It is no secret that the presidential race is a two-horse race between former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.Gorge Wajackoyah's acceleration is also a factor as this can lead to a runoff election if he garners enough votes to deny both Raila and Ruto from getting 50 percent plus one vote, the required threshold.Today, 5th July 2022, the Azimio la Umoja brigade led by Baba stormed the Mt Kenya region in the quest to woo supporters to their camp. Honorable Raila Odinga was accompanied by his battalions; honorable Martha Karua, MP Maina Kamanda, Peter Kenneth, and MP Ngunjiri Wambugu.DP Ruto's running mate who is also the Mathira's MP, honorable Rigathi Gachagua, had nowhere to hide when Nyeri residents accorded euphoric reception to the Azimio team.While addressing the mammoth crowd, Mheshimiwa Martha Karua was quick to point out that Deputy President is an angry man and he can rule with an iron fist if get the elements of power.Internet users took to social media to make their thoughts known, with many congratulating Baba for breaking the mountain barrier that has been a major stumbling block in his quest for the presidency.What are your thoughts on the same?
