Preparations in Top Gear as DP Ruto Expected to Counter Raila Visit in Uhuru's Backyard This Sunday

2022 general election is less than nine months away and political leaders have begun early preparations. The majority of them have kicked off early campaigns by moving from one part of the country to another to popularize themselves to Kenyan voters.

Deputy President Dr. William Ruto is among the leaders who have intensified their campaigns in different parts of the country. The second in command is expected in Kiambu county on Sunday where he will attend church service before engaging residents.

He is expected to visit several places where he will hold public rallies as well as empower small business owners. He will be in Kiamba, Kabete, and Kikuyu constituencies.

His close allies belonging to the Tanga tanga wing are expected to escort him in his tour of Uhuru Kenyatta's backyard. They include Kiharu member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, Kiambaa MP John Njuguna, and Kiambu Women Representative Gathoni Wa Muchomba.

The Deputy President will be looking to counter Raila Odinga's influence in the region a day after he left. The ODM chief had visited the area a day after the Mashujaa Day celebration and he was able to influence area leaders such as the former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo who pledged to support him.

The two leaders have been battling for Mt Kenya region votes, with each of them camping in the region most of the time compared to other parts of the the country. All attention will focus on Kiambu this Sunday to see how he will be received.
