The popular Mt. Kenya Lawyer Wahome Thuku has elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans after he sent out a night message about the Mountain ahead of the upcoming general elections on the 9th of August 2022.
Through his social media page, Wahome Thuku cited that the Mt. Kenya region has now become a real battleground for votes ahead of the August elections. He said that the region is now a 50/50 region and that's why all the leading Coalitions will camp there permanently until the 9th of August.
He implied that the vote-rich regions are now the center of attention with Politicians doing everything possible to have a share. He said that no one can claim the region as voters are now split.
Kenyans have aired different views over this some agreeing with Wahome Thuku, citing that the region is now becoming slippery. Others however cite that Politicians have even forgotten other regions, shifting all their focus to the region.
Mt. Kenya region has been perceived as the Deputy President William Ruto's stronghold but the unveiling of Martha Karua, who hails from the region as Raila Odinga's running mate seems to have given Odinga a boost.
