Uhuru who has in recent days showed interest in supporting the one Kenya alliance candidate, might be forced to think outside the box in a bid to accommodate Raila Odinga who has a huge following across the nation. Although the former prime minister and the president are fighting a common agenda to stop Ruto from ascending to power, his entry could see new developments in coming days.
This will be the fifth time that Riala Odinga will be making a shot at the presidency after failing four times in his bid to make it to statehouse. Political pundits believe that this is the last shot for the former prime minister who will be drawing closer to 80 years by 2022.
