Huge Blow To Dp Ruto As Embu Leaders Publicly Declare Their Preferred Presidential Candidate

The race for State House in next year's general elections will feature, among other leaders, Deputy President William Ruto go head on with Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga. For some time now, focus has been on who the Mt Kenya region will vote for their president, with both Ruto and Raila battling for supremacy in the vote-rich region.

Dp Ruto was seen as the favorite candidate to grab all votes in Mt Kenya, but the coin has been flipped, and there are bigger chances that Raila Odinga will garner more votes in the mountain.

This has been affirmed by a section of Embu leaders, who unanimously declared their support for the former prime minister. As per a report from K24 Tv, the leaders said that they will back Raila Odinga as the next president after a good relationship between him and the people of Embu.

"A section of Embu grassroot leaders throw weight behind Raila’s presidential bid," tweeted K24.
