As the nation heads to the 2022 general election, many top leaders have been campaigning seriously especially in Mt. Kenya region. For a period of time now, the vote rich region has been a battle field of President Uhuru Kenyatta's allies and those of Deputy President William Ruto but until now, Uhuru's allies like Ngunjiri Wambugu, Kanini Kega, Maoka Maore and others have been claiming that they are in control.
Today, all eyes shifted to the Uhuru's allies and those others that don't support DP William Ruto after Rigathi Gachagua's latest message. According to reports, the Mathira Member of Parliament claimed that all the politicians who want various seats in Mt. Kenya region must pass through Ruto.
"He stated that the mountain is currently Ruto's stronghold and any politician who wishes to ascend to any seat in the region must seek the DP's blessings." Reported K24 TV.
Although the likes of Maoka Maore, Kanini Kega, Ngunjiri Wambugu, Sabina Chege and others are yet to respond, they will probably do so. It is not known whether they will seek Ruto's blessings or not but definitely, time will tell.
