Huge Boost for ODM as Matiang’i Openly Back Raila's Presidential Bid

Cabinet Secretary for Interior security Fred Matiang'i has today openly declared his unwavering support for Raila Amollo Odinga’s presidential bid in a fundraising held at Mwongori High School in Kisii according to a live video broadcasted by The ODM Party.

Matiang’i spoke confidently that he believes in the handshake between his boss and former PM and that he will stand with them going forward. While speaking in local dialect, the CS said Odinga is best fit to take over from Uhuru because he stands for unity.

“Do you want me to continue walking with mzee?” he asked the crowd which resoundingly said “yes” amid cheers. He also warned members of the Abagusii community from following people who do not have interests of the country at heart.

The former PM also said that Matiang’i is a focused and disciplined leader that he respects a lot. Odinga pledged to work with him and together with Kisii Governor James Ongwae as they shook hands in front of the excited crowd.

We wish them all the best in their political ambitions. Watch the video here
