Murang`a Women Representative Sabina Chege`s ally who sought anonymity with the Nation`s publication claimed that they have no plans of endorsing Orange Democratic Movement Leader Raila Odinga since President Uhuru Kenyatta will be stepping down come 2022.
The ally said Uhuru will respect the will of the Central people since he will no longer be in power to direct them on who to support or not.
On Saturday, July 31, 2021 the Nation confirmed from Chege`s aide to noted that they were so busy serving the Nation and not planning on how they were going to support Raila become the fifth President of Kenya.
According to the aforesaid publication, Chege`s ally responded back to a blogger after the latter insinuated that she was in Gatanga to show their support to Raila, an allegation he pulled down.
“That is nonsense…we are busy elsewhere. We are serving the nation and our electorate in other matters and we are busy,” Ms Chege`s ally bitterly fired back at the blogger.
The Nation later established the cause of his anger towards the blogger, saying that following and being part of Raila`s political meetings was not something was their great concern amid the different waves of political tension ahead of the 2022 polls.
“Following Mr. Odinga and expressing open support for his presidential ambition is not to the best of our interests,”
“The President cannot afford to go against the grain since he is retiring in 2022 and will not be seeking Mt. Kenya votes but following him into the proposed Jubilee Party and Orange democratic Movement (ODM) merger is suicidal,” he said.
He further revealed that they are finding it difficult to endorse Raila for any political position even in his own home ground.
“Those of us who harbor political aspirations beyond 2022 are finding it a nightmare of terror proportions to endorse Mr. Odinga for any position even in his own political base of Kibra or even in Luo Nyanza,” he added.
