Oparanya Delivers Bad News to Raila Odinga, Reveals What Kakamega Meeting Was All About

A delegation of Western Kenya politicians, led by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli, pitched a tent in Kakamega yesterday to debate the region's position in 2022.

And today, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has brought bad news to Raila Odinga, denying that the Kakamega gathering approved Raila Odinga for president.

Oparanya stated that, while he supports Raila Odinga for the presidency, the meetings he had with Western leaders were only focused on the region's interests ahead of the 2022 General Elections. "Obviously, as the ODM deputy party leader, I will support Raila Odinga for the presidency, but others have other opinions. It was an open conversation, but we never stated unequivocally that we would back Raila Odinga "According to Oparanya.

"We agreed to continue discussing 2022 until we reached a consensus.

When we agree on a course of action, the entire region will follow suit "Oparanya elaborated.

Oparanya also stated that they chose Francis Atwoli to conduct meetings with presidential aspirants to determine which one should get the support of Western Kenya.
