Why Kiraitu Drumming Up Support for Raila in Meru Might Put his Career at Risk Ahead of 2022

Concerns have arisen regarding the political career of Meru county governor Kiraitu Murungi after drumming up support behind former prime minister Raila Odinga.

While taking the ODM party leader around Meru region, Kiraitu and his longtime rival and agriculture cabinet secretary Peter Munya united inorder to campaign for Raila in 2022.

Bearing in mind that Meru has never been Raila's stronghold before,it is uncertain whether even with the influence of their top leaders like Kiraitu,they would vote in Raila come 2022.

Also, majority may wonder if Kiraitu who aims to retain his governor seat come 2022 would manage after showing he is behind the former prime minister.

His declaration to rally behind Raila might put his career at a very high risk considering this is the first time he has supported him and he has never lost in an election since he ventured into politics.

The same same people demonized Raila in the region during previous years which might make it hard to convince the people of him being fit for the top seat.

What do you think?
