Big Boost to Raila After Mt. Kenya Tycoon Declares Him Best Candidate to Succeed Pres. Uhuru

ODM party leader, Raila Odinga has received huge boost after Mt. Kenya business man and politician declared him as the best candidate to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022. The race to succeed the President is heating up interestingly as various candidates are meeting to form coalitions.

The One Kenya Alliance seems to be favored by President Uhuru Kenyatta but the recent meeting among Sen. Gideon Moi, Muhoho Kenyatta and Raila Odinga raised eyebrows. Hon. Gideon Moi is a member of the One Kenya Alliance and his meeting with Raila must have been for a political discussion.

Raila Odinga is also seen as a possible candidate for 2022 presidential seat and his bid seems to have been boosted after renowned tycoon, Jimnah Mbaru's statement.

@JimnahMbaru All things said and done @RailaOdinga would still make the best President for Kenya after @Uhuru Kenyatta has finished his term.

According to Jimnah Mbaru, Raila Odinga would make the best President for Kenya after President Uhuru Kenyatta has finished his term. Jimnah Mbaru is among the influential Mt. Kenya business people who always fund presidential campaigns. He is the Head of Dyer and Blair Investment Bank which has been prosperous over the years.

His support towards Raila Odinga's presidential bid cannot be taken lightly. He is among President Uhuru's insiders who bankrolled Uhuru's 2013 and 2017 campaigns.
