Raila Reveals The Reason He Has Refused To Declare His Candidature For The 2022 General Elections

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has disclosed why he is yet to declare his candidature to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 General Election.

Speaking on Wednesday, the ODM leader said that his main focus is to take his Azimio La Umoja campaign bid to Kenyans, informing them of his track record as well as unveiling his plans for the future.

Raila noted that his decision will be based on the opinions from the Kenyans.

“I am getting the opinions of Kenyans on different issues and at the end of these consultations, which I hope is going to be by the end of this month, I’ll have made up my mind and I will make an announcement if I am going to run or not,” he stated.

Raila further denied claims that he is Uhuru’s project tag, claiming that he welcomes Uhuru to support him.

“I have a track record which is known. I do not need to be sponsored by anybody, I’ll go to Kenyans to tell them of what I’ve done in the past and what I intend to do in the future. If the President supports me, it will be a compliment and I will be very happy,” Raila stated.
