The 2022's hopeful presidential candidates are eyeing support from Mount Kenya Region owing to its large voter basket, which in past elections has been considered as the backbone of the country's politics.
Different political experts state that the fall out between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto has been a 'blessing' to the DP who continues to have a massive support from Mt Kenya Region.
Raila Odinga who is yet to announce his presidential bid is expected to brush shoulders with Musalia Mudavadi and Ruto as they seek to woo Mt Kenya Regions to rally behind them in the coming general elections.
Lugari MP Ayub Savula admits that Ruto's political force across the country and especially in Mt Kenya region is unstoppable, and hence the DP is a man to watch come 2022.
Savula adds that ANC's party leader Musalia Mudavadi stand as the only politician who can give Ruto a run for his money in Mount Kenya as he seeks to pocket the region votes.
The ANC deputy party leader argues that Raila is unsellable, while Kalonzo Musyoka has less influence compared to Musalia Mudavadi who is friendly and has power to woo the residents.
