Huge Blow to Mudavadi's Presidential Bid After Popular Western Governor Makes a Brave Statement

ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi has stood his ground that he will be on the presidential ballot despite calls from a section of leaders from Western Region to abandon his bid and back up ODM boss Raila Odinga.

Mudavadi who has traversed few parts of the country to popularize his bid claims that he is the best person suited to fit in President Uhuru Kenyatta's shoes when he retires next year.

This is not the case by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who believes that the 2022 presidential race is between Deputy President William Ruto and Raila.

The vocal county boss argues that Mudavadi do not have the political muscle to defeat Ruto and Raila on the ballot, and the best thing for him to do is to unite with the former Prime Minister adding that his presidential popularity does not go past the Nandi Hills.

"We only have two horses. If you pass by Lugari, Nandi Hills, go to Kericho, Nairobi and Mombasa you will realize his interests do not go beyond the Nandi Hills," said the former Chairman of Council of Governors.

Oparanya had declared his presidential interest but shelved it for the sake of his party leader.
