Kenya have conducted several presidential elections since the independence. In the next year's polls, many have come out to contest for the top most post after Kenyatta's exit.
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga is a popular Kenya politician who had contest for the presidential post 4 times in history.
Raila's first time to contest was in 1997 where he lost to the late President Moi. He contest for the second time in 2007 and lost to the retired President Kibaki. This is where the electoral results brought post election violence and led to the formation of coalition government between Odinga and Kibaki.
For the third and forth time, Mr Odinga lost both electoral votes to President Uhuru Kenyatta. In the last three electoral polls, Mr Odinga have been ganging millions of votes to mean even if he had been losing elections, he is loved by some good number of voters.
After the end of every election Raila had lost, his supporters would think that he is done with politics but to their surprise, Odinga always use new tactics to bring back his supporters.
In the last polls of 2017 elections, his supporters seems to be tired of him losing elections every time. But since the handshake with President Kenyatta, Raila has gain more popularity than even before.
This politician is very tactical in his plans. Don't forget to like and share with your friends.
