The effort to lock Mount Kenya region votes is now the greatest headache for the two major presidential contenders, the deputy president William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga ahead of 2022 polls.
Speaking this morning on K24 Television this morning, the Public Policy Analyst, Arnold Maliba said that the Mountain region is already prepared and have in mind the person they will vote for to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Maliba noted that at the moment the region is fully behind the second in command and will vote for him in large numbers since they already know what he stands for.
He added that even though other presidential hopefuls have also started making their ways into the region, the region is not a a swing vote area and will vote in block as it has always been seen in most general elections.Photo: Public Policy Analyst, Arnold Maliba.
"I do not think Mount Kenya is a swing vote area, they have already decided and they know exactly what they want. At the moment, by and large they will vote for the deputy president William Ruto," he said as quoted by K24 Television.
