Opinion - Places Where Raila Will Get More Votes Than His Competitors

Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Amollo Odinga by now has organized his camp largely in just less than one month, the political supremo is expected to make his stab at presidency for the fifth time next year and has been successful in his quest to make Mount Kenya region to warm up for his presidency, he has the most powerful allies from the region supporting his bid.

As we approach the electioneering period, here are counties that are likely to vote for Raila Odinga next year;

Nyanza Kenya

Raila hails from the region in Siaya county, with no doubt the people of nyanza will vote overwhelmly for ODM chief Baba Raila.

Central Kenya

Though the region has never supported Raila in his recent bids, the trend has changed with seven county bosses declaring their support for Raila Odinga and thousands of electorates electorates embracing him in his visits to the region.

Coast Kenya

Away from Nyanza the Coast region is Raila's stronghold and without doubt the region will vote largely for Raila as Mombasa governor and the other governors pitch their tent in his camp

North Eastern Kenya

The region which has many issues on climate have geared for Raila's leadership with several governors supporting him.

Western Kenya

Despite Musalia Mudavadi's presence in the presidential race, Raila's popularity in the region remains intact considering 2013 where Raila was voted in largely than Musalia. Currently all the Western governors led by Kakamega governor Wyclieffe Oparanya all support Raila and they will deliver a good junk of Western votes.

Eastern Kenya

Kalonzo Musyoka is the kingpin of the region and has declared his presidency but he has no chance considering the current political atmosphere where only two candidates have upper hand to become president, Raila is a friend of the Eastern people and the three governors have a link to him hence he has the region's support.

Nairobi Kenya

The capital city have a greater love for Raila Odinga and this has always been reflected in the ballot and it will be the same scenario in 2022.
