Within Garissa county Odinga was ahead with 53,431 votes against Ruto’s 16,172 votes.

This comes as a major upset for DP Ruto as Garissa has been perceived to be his turf since President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee win in major seats in the county during the 2017 general election results.

Duale is contesting against former Garissa mayor and deputy ambassador to Pakistan Abdi Yare, ODM candidate Nasir Mohamed, and former deputy speaker Farah Maalim
