But Osotsi on Sunday predicted that Raila will be the one to hold the powerful position after successfully succeeding the outgoing Uhuru Kenyatta.
He also heaped praises on Raila, terming him the man responsible for the freedoms Kenyans are now enjoying through the struggles he has participated in.
"We have to thank Raila because of the many freedoms we are now enjoying, he is the one who brought them. Let us stand with him as he seeks the presidency and I am sure we will cross the line next year," said the vocal lawmaker.
His remarks were echoed by former Westlands MP Fred Gumo, who said that even Raila's opponents who are now insulting him are his beneficiaries.
He urged Kenyans to give Raila a chance to lead them as their show of gratefulness for the price he has paid just to make Kenya a better place.
"He has done a lot for us, even those insulting him are using the freedom of expression he fought for. Why don't we give him a chance to implement the good plans he has been telling us about?" he posed.
He expressed confidence that Kenya will experience massive changes once Raila takes over.
