Nyanza’s embrace of president Ruto throws Raila’s critics off balance

The recent embrace of President Ruto by the Nyanza region has thrown the critics of Raila Odinga off balance. The Nyanza region, which is considered to be a stronghold of the opposition leader, has traditionally been seen as a bastion of support for Raila Odinga and his party, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM). However, in recent times, there has been a shift in the political landscape of the region, with many of its residents expressing support for President Ruto and his Jubilee Party.

The reasons for this shift in support are complex, but it is believed that the residents of Nyanza are looking for a change from the status quo. Many have grown tired of the constant bickering and infighting between Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta, and they see President Ruto as a unifying figure who can bring the country together. Additionally, many of the residents of Nyanza have been impressed with the development projects that President Ruto has undertaken in the region, such as the construction of new roads and the expansion of electricity access.

They had long assumed that the region would remain loyal to Raila Odinga and the ODM, and they were caught off guard by the shift in support. This has led to a lot of confusion and uncertainty among the opposition, with many of them scrambling to understand what is happening in the region and how they can respond to it.

Despite the challenges that the ODM is currently facing in Nyanza, it is important to remember that the region has a long history of political fluidity. It is not uncommon for the residents of Nyanza to shift their support between different political parties and leaders depending on the circumstances. Therefore, it is likely that the ODM will continue to be a major player in the region, and that it will find ways to regain its support among the residents of Nyanza.
