political temperatures have continued to rise in the country ahead of the August polls and leaders are doing everything to ensure that they are elected in the August polls. However, DP Ruto’s camp has been facing a big blow ahead of August polls after two infuential leaders from the Mt Kenya region threatened to leave the camp. Fresh details have emerged on what Kabogo has begun doing in Mt Kenya after parting ways with DP Ruto.
According to the source, it revealed that Kabogo has officially abandoned Deputy President Ruto and now he is campaigning for his gubernatorial bid. Kabogo has been telling the people of the Mt Kenya region to vote for him as the governor of Kiambu and also vote for their favorite candidates ahead of the August polls. However, the ongoing speculation that is being purported by the Azimio allies has continued to lure Kabogo to join the coalition. Kabogo had initially declared that he will not be going to join any coalition ahead of August polls simply because he is now focusing on his gubernatorial bid.
With the August 9, 2022 general election coming less than two months from the deadline, each candidate is doing everything to convince voters.
Deputy President Ruto, Kenya Kwanza Union Presidential Candidate, and Azimio La Umoja One Flag Bearer, Hon. Raila Odinga, is traveling the country to convince voters to support them.
Former Hon Raila Prime Minister Odinga and DP Ruto are spending a lot of time in Mount Kenya, Western Kenya and the Rift Valley during this year’s election season. This is because the three regions together represent more than 22.1 million registered voters.
Two candidates are vying for votes in these districts as it will be difficult to win the August elections without the support of all three regions. The presidential election is expected to be won by whoever can win the support of the voters of the three regions.
DP Ruto and Raila selected companions from Mount Kenya, Rigathi Gachagua and Martha Karua respectively. This is a method of trying to encourage voters in the district to vote for them, because they have their own MPs.
Both candidates are still working hard to try to win voters across the country, and whoever wins the best will beat the other in the August 9 poll.
