The region is predominantly opposition and has all the time rallied behind Raila Odinga.
Except the president position the rest of the position are clan based politics.
In 2007 it overwhelming voted for Raila and his party ODM to the man.
In 2013 though Raila was the main man,but some little factors and propaganda come in.
For instance in Wajir the propaganda was Jaromogi Odinga the late doyen of politics said once if he will be President he will poison our wells,and the jubilee side very much advanced with their propaganda,propagated the same. They will go to local FM stations and say Raila will fulfil his fathers promise. Clever enough we voted for Raila but his votes were stolen and reduced,added to that of Uhuru.
In Garissa Duale lost but he forced himself on to people. Raila votes were stolen and those of Uhuru inflated. When the governor and women are CORD what does that tells you?? Tumeibiwa.
In Mandera everybody knows what happened elders imams sheikhs leaders were literally bought but they are now regretting.
2017 Anybody who fails loyalty test will be cursed.
Despite Mandera voting for URP Raila never left them,he stood with them when the govt killed its own people.
For Hon Duale it will be a miracle if he is reelected this time round.
