With barely 203 days to the much anticipated August 9, 2022 polls, Raila Odinga is readying his forces to make his fifth stab which he believes will actualize.
According to latest stats from Infotrak, Raila is trailing the man from Sugoi with a 26% margin. To minimize the gap and possibly outrun the latter, Odinga's son has hatched a plan whose application will no doubt see Ruto's Mt Kenya political castle crumbling floor by floor.
Firstly, Jakom is in good books with the region's tycoons who have since vowed to oil his campaigns. The said group comprises of notable figures and policy makers who have for decades defined Kenyan politics.
With their support, Raila will verily stage one of the most oiled presidential campaigns. Earlier this week, Agwambo's Statehouse bid received a major boost with six governors from Mt Kenya throwing their gauntlets behind him.
In a consultative meeting held in Naivasha, Governor Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua), James Nyoro (Kiambu), Kiraitu Murungi (Meru), Martin Wambora (Embu), Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru) and Anne Kananu (Nairobi) promised to rally voters from their respective counties to back Raila presidency.
Should their plan go as it is on the script, Ruto's castle in the said counties will take a downward trajectory and that will consequently give Raila Odinga a breakthrough.
