Dogoretti North member of parliament Simba Arati engaged in a physical fight with his counterpart of Dagoretti south Sylvanus Osoro. TENSION started when Simba Arati’s speech at Kisii deputy governor’s father’s burial, started to directly attack Ruto’s supporters. Arati wondered why people would elect William Ruto as the president after Moi served Kenya for 24 Years. Arati triggered the war after he said that Ruto has to apologize for the Kisii people who died in 2007 post-elections violence. According to Arati William Ruto should not vie for the presidency. Arati was on the podium at Abel Gongera’s burial who is the father to Deputy governor of Kisii Joash maangi.

Simba Arati Fighting With Sylvanus Osoro
Osoro went straight toward the podium where Ararti was speaking from and that’s where they engaged in a fight. The chaos made the funeral service a standstill for a few minutes. ODM leader Raila Odinga and William Ruto were seated at the front seats listening as Arati was speaking.
“Mheshimiwa Ruto, the Deputy President, huwezi tembea hapa Kisii…sisi kama wakisii hatuwezi kuwa kwamba watu ambao unatembea na wao…it’s not our face…unatembea na wezi, wash wash…hawa watu ndio unataka unatembea na wao around. Unataka tufanye nini?” Simba Arati said
Rarienda member of parliament Otiende Amollo has accused nominated senator Isaac Mwaura of causing mayhem at Githurai 45. Mwaura is believed to have hires goons from different areas to disrupt Raila’s Campaign. Otiende in an interview with Citizen Tv said that he has evidence on how Mwaura paid the goons. Otiende and Babu Owino had accompanied the ODM leader to urge youths to support BBI.
“There’s evidence that Isaac Mwaura personally organised that violence in Githurai…it’s illogical for Raila to hire goons to disrupt his own rally…Mwaura is a man I have respected, but now he is putting my respect to the test,” Otiende said

On the other hand, Senator Isaac Mwaura said the accusations were fake and the goon came with Raila Odinga to neutralize William Ruto’s supporters. In a video that went viral on social media, Mwaura is heard clearly planning yesterday’s mayhem.
“Githurai people are very peaceful, the goons you saw were hired from Baba Dogo by TJ Kajwang (Ruaraka MP) and Babu Owino (Embakasi East), they’re the ones who caused chaos,”
“We are ready to show them that we own Githurai” Mwaura said in a video that went viral before the campaign started
Today Githurai experienced chaos as ODM Party leader Raila Odinga was addressing the public. The chaos escalated as Deputy William Ruto supporters started chanting his name. Odinga was selling BBI to the public in the area. The two groups started confronting each other and eventually started throwing stones carelessly. Raila Odinga was forced to leave the scene for his safety. The police of the area intervened and started firing teargas cans to dispersed angry youths and calm things down. Raila Odinga was later able to address them where he urged them to back the BBI report since it will create jobs among youths. Raila Odinga argued that the constitutional amendments are projected to improve the living standards among Kenyan people. His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to meet with M.t Kenya region leaders to discuss more about the BBI report.
A meeting was held yesterday, hosted by Royal Media chairman S.K Macharia and former prime minister Raila Odinga. Musicians were urged to support BBI since it will enforce copyright laws. Samidoh, Loise Kim, and Betty Bayo were among those represented Kenyan artists. Raila Odinga urged them to embark on the building bridges initiative. The meeting was held at Royal media with more than 50 attendees. According to S.k Macharia, the handshake between H.E Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga is the best thing that has ever happened in politics and is worth praise. “BBI will ensure that intellectual property rights are adhered to,” Raila Odinga said.

“I had a dynamic and insightful engagement with youth hailing from Nairobi county who pledged their full and unwavering support for the BBI process. The referendum train continues to garner speed unabated. It’s now all systems go!” RAILA ODINGA
According to reports, former prime minister Raila Amollo Odinga will be vying for presidency come 2022. The battle for the next Kenya president will be between Raila Odinga and incumbent deputy president William Samoei Ruto. The Hustler “William Ruto” is well known for his good campaign tactics. On the other hand, Raila Odinga followers are “die-hards” Raila Odinga followers base never changes no matter what. He has constant followers of over 6 million voters.
Below Is A Breakdown To Reasons Why Ruto Might Lose To Raila Odinga
1. RUTO’S SYSTEM OF CAMPAIGN NOT WORKING TO MANY KENYANS
Many Kenyans are not liking the way Ruto is conducting his campaigns. Ruto has been campaigning by using the term "hustle" which many people are not happy about it. Another key thing is that he has been giving Kenyans wheelbarrows which seems not to be helping then in any way. Many Kenyans who live in urban areas have a lot of problems which has not been addressed for years. An example is people who live in Nairobi lack clean water for use. This is a very basic need that Kenyans demand from leaders. The Uhuru Ruto government has not done much to Kenyans and life has become even harder to common Mwananchi. This means a judgment on their governance is for both of them.

2. Prisident Uhuru Kenyatta Might Support Raila Odinga 2022.
Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta have been very close lately. The two have been advocating for BBI which Ruto has been opposing. This means that there is a high chance that Raila will get support from Uhuru Kenyatta. If the BBI will pass the two will stand a high chance to work together. BBI has been advocating for equitability, equality, and peace among Kenyan ethnic groups. It has also promised young people and women opportunities. This means Raila will stand a high chance to become the next president.
