Is This Raila's Running Mate? Leader Being Fronted by Mt Kenya Tycoons to Deputize Raila Revealed

With the next general election only a few months away, presidential candidates have been campaigning across Kenya in the hopes of succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto have already established themselves as serious contenders for the presidency, thanks to their aggressive campaigns across the country and the widespread support they have received.

The Mount Kenya Foundation, which is made up of Mount Kenya billionaires, has reportedly endorsed former Gatanga Mp Peter Kenneth to be Raila Odinga's running mate in the 2022 general elections.

Peter Kenneth is said to have been chosen by the billionaires to be Raila's running mate, in order to bring power to Murang'a county, where they are concentrated.

Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta have yet to say whether they will support the Mount Kenya tycoons' choice of Peter Kenneth as Raila's running mate.

Raila Odinga is also expected to make a big announcement next month on his presidential bid
