What you need to know:

  • In the run-up to the last elections, Mt Kenya voters shifted solidly towards Dr Ruto, decisively turning against their own ‘son’, then-outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
  • Mr Ichung’wah and others who revel in their roles as President Ruto’s point men in the populous region are having it rough.
  • Disillusioned voters will not be bought back into line by this version of voter bribery.
