The countdown to 2022 elections is already on and reports confirm that the top two presidential candidates Raila Odinga and Deputy president William Ruto have already formed their campaign teams with the aim of reaching out to more regions.
Initially, the two led their own rallies but the new strategy will involve their top supporters like the governor’s and MCAs who will move from region to region to campaign for the presidential candidates.
In other news, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who decamped from Uhuru’s team and joined Ruto’s UDA boldly sent a message to the head of state claiming that his party is dead and forgotten in the Mt Kenya region.
According to Waiguru, the Mt Kenya region which is known to have the largest number of voters is currently in full support of UDA which is a good indication that Ruto’s team stands a higher chance of winning the August elections.
The governor also stated in confidence that President Kenyatta who has been backing his handshake brother Raila Odinga will be put to shame by UDA’s win.
“We have nothing to fear, in fact, the president will be surprised that the mountain moved a long time ago and it’s solidly in UDA,” she said
