Politics appears to be taking a new shape the closer we near August as tables seem to be gradually turning with time. According to the recently produced statistics by InfoTrak platform, it has been revealed that Raila has a commanding lead of 9.3 million votes. This number of votes is basically assured from about 20 counties. These are counties lying all the way from the Coastal region, Northern region, Lower Eastern region, Western, Nyanza, and Nairobi regions.
Things are said to have started making these changes in graphs after the two candidates picked their running mates from the Mt. Kenya region. The source has revealed that Raila and his running mate, Martha Karua have received 42% of the vote over Ruto with Rigathi Gachagua’s fetching about 38% of the votes. DP Ruto is said to be following Raila with only 8.4 million votes. The statistics have revealed that DP Ruto won the counties in the Rift Valley, the Northern part of Kenya, and the great Mount Kenya region.
Raila and Ruto campaigns
The top presidential candidates are rushing against time to ensure they have carried out campaigns in all 47 counties before time fades away. It is very clear on the ground that Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate Deputy President William Ruto and Azimio- OKA Presidential candidate Raila Odinga are the top two candidates with the highest chances of succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
The two have deployed campaign strategies and machinery nationwide to hunt down votes with Mt. Kenya being the main target. Raila is now campaigning like net before he tries his luck despite having been rejected several times.
As this happens, DP Ruto remains a major challenge to them as he continues enjoying popularity in most counties where he has been taking campaigns throughout his entire campaign period. A lot is expected the more we near August.
