Lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi Says Ruto will Beat Raila with 3.5 Million Votes

City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has expressed confidence that Deputy President William Ruto will squarely and surely beat ODM leader Raila Odinga in the August 9 General Elections. 

In an update on Twitter, the lawyer noted that Raila got large percentage of votes from Western, Eastern and Coast regions but President Uhuru Kenyatta still managed to beat him.

Abdullahi stated that since support has gone down in the three regions, it will be impossible for the ODM leader to contest and beat DP Ruto. 

“In 2017 Hon Raila got 80% of Western votes, 98% of lower Eastern & 75% of Coast votes yet H.E Uhuru crashed him with a victory margin of 1.4 Million votes

“Today he is at 40% in Western, 15% in lower Eastern and 45% in Coast. Ruto will crash him with btw 2.5m to 3.5m votes,” the lawyer said.

Elsewhere, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr revealed Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s back up plan in case the latter does not secure the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party running mate slot. 

In an interview with the Standard, the senator said the back up plan includes Kalonzo cutting ties with Azimio flag bearer Raila Odinga and contesting for the top seat by himself.  

Kilonzo Jnr added that Wiper has started collecting signatures in preparation of Kalonzo’s presidential bid should he miss the Azimio running mate slot.

“We agreed that the signature collection should start immediately and be complete by Thursday; we are looking ahead. We cannot be begging all the time. We are ahead of the game,” Kilonzo Jnr said.
