However, Mudavadi and other One Kenya Alliance (OKA) co-principals insist they will be on the ballot in 2022 though it’s now clear the presidential race is a two-horse race between Raila and Ruto.

In an interview with a local station in Kenya, Mulembe Fm, Jirongo called on Mudavadi to stand with Raila because he feels he has a better chance with Odinga than with Dp Ruto.

Raila is a neighbor and an older man who we have worked with. He is more of a team mate who can easily endorse and support one of our own as a presidential candidate as opposed to Ruto, who is unlikely to do so,” said Jirongo.

This move gives Odinga's team another muscle against Dp Ruto.
