The Former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga is a long-serving political enigma who has weathered several political storms in Kenya. Regardless of how brilliant he is, he has never won an election despite running in four different elections between 1997, 2007, 2013, and 2017. Raila Odinga is running for president for the fifth time, with President Uhuru Kenyatta's support.
Raila Odinga, on the other hand, will have a difficult time persuading Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the wiper party, to join the Azimio la Umoja campaign. Raila remarked in Lavington that he is not pressuring anyone to join his Azimio la Umoja camp, referring to Kalonzo and his OKA alliance. According to several sources, the ODM leader has given up attempting to persuade Kalonzo to join him, with Kalonzo allegedly resurrecting the 2017 deal. As a result, the Daily Nation claimed that Raila has indicated that he would only work with individuals who are interested in joining him in the future.
"If you feel compelled to attend, don't." Nobody is compelled to join Azimio. It's a group of people that are willing to work together. The meeting is open to everyone who is interested. According to the same newspaper, the leader said, "I will deal with those who are eager to cooperate with us."
Raila said on Monday that he will not be attending his party's delegate meeting on Saturday with Kalonzo and his staff and will instead be joined by Azimio members who have rallied behind him.
"We don't plan on having any visitors." "There will be documents that willing parties who are eager to collaborate with Azimio will sign," he explained. However, Cyrus Jirongo and Gideon Moi are rumored to be considering joining Raila Odinga's Presidential support team as the August General.
Do you think Raila needs Kalonzo's support to become the fifth president of Kenya?
