It is on a Thursday just two days before the weekend and the two leading presidential aspirants are leaving nothing to chance as far as wooing the vote-rich Mt Kenya and Western regions are concerned.
While a section of Deputy President William Ruto’s team transversed the Coastal region on Wednesday, Raila Odinga and another section of Ruto’s team pitched camps in Vihiga and Bungoma counties respectively.
It was, however, the reception that Raila received in Vihiga that left Kenyans wondering whether the two brothers, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi, who were in Bungoma, are still the region’s kingpins.
While Raila’s rally was full to capacity, Musalia and Moses’ rallies seemed to be struggling with only a handful of supporters showing up to welcome sons of the soil into their backyards.
It was imminent from the crowd that attended the two different political rallies that Musalia and Wetangula could be struggling to outdo Raila’s dominance in Western Kenya.
Do you think the two Luhya kingpins will deliver Kenya Kwanza more than 70% presidential?
