The ODM leader Raila Odinga will be receiving massive Support in his bid to be the fifth president of the republic of kenya after making peace with President kenyatta.

Besides Uhuru's backing, the former Prime minister enjoys support from a group of mount Kenya tycoons who have promised to walk with him.

They include royal media Services Owner SK macharia, former equity bank chairman Peter Munga among others.

The question that beggs answers is whether Raila is going to be a puppet president to serve the interests of his sponsors.

His fiercest competitor DP William Ruto has been warning Kenyans against voting for a 'project' whose only work will be protecting the interests of the wealthy who sponsored him.

Nevertheless, is Raila fails to become a puppet president, then the other option would be turning against his benefactors by employing dictatorial tendencies and cut links with them.
