Kandara MP Alice Wahome has continued to claim that Deputy President William Ruto will win the upcoming presidential election during the first round.
Speaking on KTN News, on Tuesday, March 22, Wahome who is a close ally of DP Ruto said that the whole country believes in the Kenya Kwanza team as compared to the Azimio la Umoja.
The outspoken lawmaker pointed out that the Kenya Kwanza alliance is in total control of the Rift Valley and Mt Kenya region both of which have a combined 9,223,849 registered voters.
“We are winning this thing first round, early in the morning, the entire of Rift Valley, the entire of Mt Kenya, Coast we have 50 percent,” Wahome said.
Wahome who is touted to be named DP Ruto’s running mate further dismissed recent polls placing the ODM leader Raila Odinga ahead of Ruto saying they were manipulated in favor of Azimio.
“If you look at polls that have been coming except the last one that was manufactured by people, I don’t know where the star got their data from that is the only time Raila is reported to have overtaken Ruto overnight,” Wahome state.
In the recent polls by Radio Africa Group, Raila Odinga emerged as the most preferred presidential candidate at 47.4 % while DP Ruto had 43.4 %.
At the same time Wahome, disputed the suggestion by political pundits that Kenya Kwanza will only win in 15 counties.
“I hear some figures that William Ruto has 15 counties, this is the kind of statements that they are trying to throw there to cause fear on our supporters,”
The outspoken legislature alleged that DP Ruto will defeat Raila in over 32 counties out of the 47 counties.
