Big Boost For Raila Odinga After Mt Kenya Youths Vow To Do The Following For Him In The Region

Former prime minister Raila Odinga has been moving swiftly to bit all odds and exert his influence in the vote rich Mt Kenya region. Throughout the electioneering years, Mr Odinga has been struggling to get meaningful votes from the region which seemingly was opposed to his leadership. However, with a good gesture from his handshake partner president Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila has started receiving followers from Mt Kenya.

The recent declaration by a group of youths from the region vowing to sell Raila Odinga's name in their region has been taken as a big Boost to Raila's 2022 presidential bid by political pundits. Many analysts now believe the youths good gesture to Raila will unlock his luck and ensure his dream. Youths are regarded as the most difficult group of people to convince for votes.

Speaking in a video that was shared by the Star Kenya, Antony Karuma, the Mt Kenya youth leader said they will archive their mission by using public rallies, churches among other means. "If Raila managed more than 200,000 votes from Mt Kenya in the last general elections with no rallies, campaigns or posters, this time with our support he will get more votes," Antony Karuma said.

Karuma has dismissed claims that they have been influenced by anyone saying what they are doing is from their own hearts for their own good.

The region has been highly contested among all the aspiring presidential candidates including the deputy president William Ruto who has already done a series of meetings with leaders from the region.
