New Twist As Raila Reveals Influential DP Ruto-allied Governor Who Has Endorsed Him For Presidency

As the race for 2022 gathers pace, ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto appear to be the front runners.

At stake in the race are major strongholds of the ODM leader which are now perceived to be in the hands of DP Ruto.

Among the region where the DP and Raila are jostling for control include the Coast Region, Western Region among many other counties.

The two counties voted overwhelmingly for the ODM leader in the Previous polls.

About the Coast Region, the ODM leader toured the area over the weekend where he met with at least 600 delegates drawn from five counties in the region.

The delegates affirmed their support for the ODM leader's Presidential bid even as aspirants such as Governor Ali Hassan Joho expressed willingness to step down for the ODM leader.

During his speech, Raila announced that Lamu Governor Salim Mvurya has endorsed his presidential bid.

A report by the Standard indicates that Governor Mvurya was even set to attend the meeting but excused himself to attend a burial.

The Governor has been one of the people who have stood together with DP Ruto even as he strategizes on how to take control of the Coast Region.
