Boost to Raila As Azimio Gets 3 Powerful Seats the Rift Valley Region

Raila Odinga, Kenya's former prime minister, stands to gain significantly as a result of the victories of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance in the Rift Valley area. Perhaps the people of the Rift Valley consider themselves to be a battalion of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance that is led by Deputy President William Ruto.

However, the results of the general election that took place on August 9th are almost entirely determined in every county in the nation with the exception of Kakamega and Mombasa counties. As a consequence of this, the Kenya Kwanza Alliance and the Azimio One Kenya Alliance are the leading political coalitions that are vying for a significant number of seats in the next government.

As a result, Azimio reaps significant benefits as the incumbent senator for Narok county, Ledama Olekina, is able to keep her seat. Olekina, who ran under the banner of the ODM party, received 135,180 votes, while her opponent, outgoing governor Samuel Tunai of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), received 117,869 votes.

In addition, George Natembeya, a former Rift Valley regional commissioner, defeated Chris Wamalwa of the Ford Kenya party to win the governorship of Trans Nzoia. Natembeya received 158,919 votes for the Democratic Action party of Kenya, while Wamalwa received 79,020 votes for the Ford Kenya party.

Additionally,Ole Lenku of the ODM got re-elected as Kajiado county administrator after garnering 117,600 votes versus Katoo Metito of the United Democratic Alliance with 111,725.

Those are the 3 Azimio top brass who defended the triumph in the Rift Valley area.
