Big Blow To Opposition Leaders After Mwangi Wa Iria Reveals What He Will Do During His Tenure

On Wednesday, January 4, a senior politician from the Mt. Kenya region made a final decision, dealing a significant blow to Raila Odinga.

According to sources, Hon Mwangi Wa Iria, a former Murang'a County governor, has decided to distance himself from the Raila-led Azimio La Umoja One-Kenya coalition.

Wa Iria, who was barred from running for president in the August 9 elections, said in a statement that he has changed his mind and will now back President William Samoei Ruto's administration.

He stated that he will support the Kenya Kwanza faction until President Ruto's term expires. Then he threatened to set them on fire if they attempted to connect him with Raila Odinga's side.

Prior to the August elections and shortly after his exclusion from the presidential race, Hon Mwangi officially endorsed Raila's candidacy. This is undoubtedly a major setback for the ODM leader, who has since remained active in politics and appears to be aiming for a sixth presidential bid.
