Raila Odinga Receives a Major Boost From Mt. Kenya Region Ahead of 2022 as This Message Emerges

Raila Odinga and the ODM Party members have received a major boost after Kikuyu Council of Elders Chairman Wachira Kiago supported the move by Jubilee to discuss forming a pact with ODM. This comes despite a section of Kieleweke members did not support the move arguing that Jubilee should sort out their issues first.

Speaking in an interview with The Star, Kiago said that the region is going to support a person who had the region's interest at heart. He said that everyone is free to sell their agenda in Mt. Kenya. He also praised the ODM leader for accepting the handshake arguing that it has brought peace.

“They will support the person who has their interests at heart. We are all Kenyans. No one should feel unwelcome to Mt Kenya. Raila did good in accepting the handshake, many Kenyans got a peaceful environment to carry on with their lives. We do not have a problem with anybody as long as our interests are taken care of,” he stated as quoted by the Star.

His message comes amid another message from a Kieleweke MP who said that the move by Jubilee and ODM will put their political careers in trouble. The MP who sought anonymity told The Star by phone that the alliance will not work since for a long time the region has been told negative things about Raila Odinga

“We have to be honest, the alliance between ODM and Jubilee was rushed and poorly thought out. The people who will suffer is not the president, but the majority of us who now have our political careers in jeopardy,” he stated.
