This comes at a time when leaders are seen deserting President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee Party, despite the fact that elections are less than a year away.
It is worth noting that the President appears to have settled on Raila as his favored successor, which means that the defections should worry him.
But, according to Aburi, there is no need for concern because the formation of new parties and Jubilee defections will have no effect on regional leaders' support for Raila.
He claimed that all parties with roots in the region back the former Premier and will eventually organize their fans and personnel behind him.
“Even though we are in other parties, we will support Raila. The best thing to do now is to remain in our parties, mobilise people and then join him towards the election time,” he told The Star
All of this is part of a strategy, according to the leader, to ensure that Deputy President William Ruto leaves the region without a vote.
