The UhuRuto duo are an increasingly worried lot in the bid to defend their seats. It seems voter apathy is becoming a harsh reality in the duo’s Mt Kenya stronghold and they are trying to hold on to anything to address the problem.
Their move, for instance, to revive the old 2013 ICC gimmicks on Monday during their Nandi rally hasn’t worked as they expected. It seems the two leaders are keen on using the old gimmick to whip up emotions in Mt Kenya for voters to turn out in large numbers as they did at the last polls.
According to the Star, a senior Jubilee Party operative among the ‘Mbele Iko Sawa’ campaign team in the region and neighbouring counties was heard lamenting to his colleagues that reigniting and riding on the dead ICC issue is akin to arousing the emotions of the dead.
The dynamic duo, UhuRuto has in the recent past tried to sell the ICC rhetoric saying that the opposition will re-open the cases against humanity should they win the August 8 poll.
Kenyans seem not to be buying into the age old gimmick and instead want a low cost of living.
