Raila Odinga has assembled a close-knit group of lawmakers to spearhead his charm offensive in Deputy President William Ruto's Rift Valley home.
The ODM leader is eager to collaborate with Kanu chairman Gideon Moi-archival Ruto's in control of the Rift Valley in order to whittle away at the DP's significant support base before of the 2022 elections.
Raila's decision to build a Rift Valley 2022 campaign team is expected to escalate his feud with Ruto, who needs every vote from his own backyard to improve his chances in 2022.
The DP has a falling out with his boss, President Uhuru, and major opposition forces are putting together an extensive plot to take him on next year.
Raila's major friend, Narok North MP Moitalel Ole Kenta, stated on Sunday that the ODM leader is reaching out to all regional leaders who support his 2022 bid to work together.
Raila is focusing his 2022 campaign messaging on reviving the Rift Valley's economic base, agriculture, and pushing cash to help the faltering sector.
The ODM leader is reportedly counting on Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, a close supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta, to spearhead his Rift Valley efforts.
