Over 20 ANC ward representatives from across the country defected to the Wafula Wamunyiyi-led DAP-K at its Nairobi headquarters.
Raila received 15 MCAs from Kakamega and Busia who joined the Orange party, claiming it is a herculean task to sell Ruto in their region.
Five ANC legislators have already announced their support for Raila, including Ayub Savula (Lugari), Oku Kaunya (Teso North), Peter Nabulindo (Matungu), Christopher Aseka (Khwisero), and Godfrey Osotsi (Nominated).
Savula stated that four more MPs and ward representatives would defect from the ANC next week.
The ANC had 17 elected and nominated legislators in the National Assembly and Senate.
Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya also revealed that more Ford Kenya and ANC MPs will defect to ODM next week in a fresh wave of defections.
