With barely less than a year to the 2022 general elections,the presidential contest is continuing to gather storm and heat.The two fiercest presidential horses are seen to be Deputy President William Ruto and ODM party leader Raila Amolo Odinga.
The region that has emerged to be so darling and a political hot cake is the vote-rich Mount Kenya region.With the region previously perceived to be predominantly controlled by DP Ruto,things seem to have started taking a different twist.
Former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Hon Mwangi Kiunjuri has alledged that it is very difficult to judge on who is controlling the vote-rich region at the moment.Kiunjuri was speaking in reference to the latest forrays that Hon Raila Odinga has been making into the region.
While speaking to the Star Newspaper, Kiunjuri opined that the region has indeed embraced Raila and has even started talking about him, something that for a very long time in Kenyan history has never occurred.
Kiunjuri clarrified that the heroic and rapturous welcome that the former Prime Minister has been receiving in the region is a clear indication that things have changed a great deal.The Service Party Boss who was previously an ardent supporter and ally of DP Ruto has been of late being seen retracking back in a bid that could be interpreted as chatting a new political path.
