Earlier today, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga paid a visit to Nyahururu county where he extended his campaigns. This visit comes just a few hours after Ruto's visit in the region. Comparably, the Orange Democratic Movement party leader pulled a larger crowd which waited for him in anticipation of his visit. This has posed a threat at the deputy president's influence in the region which he had created during his visit.
Raila had attended a church service that morning where he gave a contribution of five hundred thousand Kenyan shillings during the Harambee. He passed by Nyahururu town to sell his political ideas to the people. What brought tension in Ruto's camp is the way the people arrived at the time before Raila's arrival just to wait to see him when he stops by.
The people in the region assured the former Prime Minister that he had been accepted in the region and he is the best choice. This warm reception was not extended to Ruto and therefore poses a big threat politically.
