What you need to know:

  • Kalonzo’s strategy appears centred on uniting Meru, Tharaka Nithi and Embu counties with his Ukambani bloc.
  • Kalonzo’s drive will be interesting to watch, given that the mountain has always voted away from his camp.
  • He was recently pictured being crowned as a Kikuyu elder, a template political move often used to gain acceptance.
