Itumbi's post comes at a time ODM has been rocked by supremacy battles. Kakamega Outgoing Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Businessman Jimmy Wanjigi, Kilifi Leader Amason Kingi, Flamboyant Ali Hassan Joho and Makueni Boss Kivutha Kibwana are among Members in Raila's Camp who are Eying Kenyatta's seat.
In a past interview, Oparanya, publicly requested Odinga to support him back alleging that he had stood with the party boss for a very long time. Wanjigi, recently, stated that he 'housed Odinga for a whole week after the 2017 botched swearing in ceremony'. Kingi, Joho and Kibwana have a belive that their regions have always stood with Raila.
Odinga is yet to put the record straight on whether he will be on the ballot. Sources, However, indicate that he is being favored by Uhuru to take after him.
