It is said only fools don’t learn from History, yet others say a man can try!
In the period prior 2001, Mt Kenya voters were clear- they will NEVER vote Raila Odinga >>>>fast forward in 2002 around September/October Raila made a supreme pronouncement ‘Kibaki Tosha’ that propelled the tired and almost UN-ELECTABLE Mwai Kibaki, yes the magic words saw Kibaki getting 99.9% of votes casted in Nyanza, 70% in coast and 70% in Western and 80% in Nairobi all strongholds of Raila Odinga…
Ealier 2003, Raila’s popularity ratings soared accross in the republic with Mt Kenya region surging at >80%, Raila was nicknamed Njamba! He made countless tours in Mt Kenya addressing rallies, launching projects and all was clear he could be President!
Fast forward, in 2005, the Mt Kenya voters started to show clear sign (true colours) that they will NOT vote Raila….. Yes, in 2007, he got less than 15% of votes casted and in 2013 even less <11% .... Now, William Ruto has been to Mt Kenya more than even the area elected leaders, he is psyched, foreplay going very well >>> so far so good….
Pundits will bet and decree that Ruto will get less than 10% of Mt Kenya votes come 2022 or any other year he may chose to run for presidency….. it is NOT rocket science, it is obvious they will simply remind fetch those meat wrappers from the archives and Youtube videos, testimonies at the ICC among others to present a case of WHY MT KENYA voters SHOULD/WILL NOT vote for Ruto!!
