As the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader_William Ruto looks forward to see if his first presidential shot will actualize or not, one of the political parameters that will determine his fate is the Mt Kenya factor.
Statistically, Mt Kenya is touted to have over 5.6 million votes which literally means that the vote-rich hub will influence the soon-to-be poll outcome. Aware of it's numerical mighty, Ruto has heavily invested in the region in form of regular visits and by choosing his running mate from Nyeri.
Now that the poll is presently underway, will the region catalyze Ruto's march to statehouse? Well, not exactly, that's if Kanini Kega's discourse is anything to stake on. In last media address, Kieni Member of Parliament revealed that the voter turnout in the region is not as high as it was in 2017.
Kega projected the turnout to be between 60-65% a 30% deviation from 2017's 90%. According to the law maker, this voter turnout will statistically affect presidential poll outcome and for the hopefuls who banked on the region's vote maybe in for a rude shock.
