"We Aren't Looking For a Luhya President" Mudavadi & Wetangula Told as Calls to Join Raila Intensify

OKA principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula has once again been urged to abandon their presidential interests and support the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Speaking during a public participation forum in Khiswero on Saturday, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya said that Kenyans were not looking for a Luhya president but a leader who has the ability to lead the country in 2022.

In a report by People Daily, Oparanya urged the two leaders to stop pretending that they have made their minds in going for the top seat, insisting that the Mulembe Nation cannot produce a president in the next few months.

"We want a leader who will head the whole country. If we want a Luhya president I can easily win it because I know where and how to get the votes. We have a lot of graft and we need somebody who can streamline our country and revive the economy," posed Oparanya.

He reinstated his earlier remarks that the race towards State House is between his party leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.

Mudavadi's allies and members of the ANC Party have maintained that he will be on the ballot come next year.
