Happiness Rocks Kenya Kwanza As They Receive Mps From Nyanza

After a group of leaders from his native Nyanza reportedly joined President-elect William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza camp on Friday, Azimio la Umoja Presidential candidate Raila Odinga may have suffered yet another blow.

Nandi County reports that on Friday, Kenya Kwanza's camp gained support from Senator Samson Cherargei, the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) led by Hon. David Ochieng, Mp. Ugenya constituency, Senator Fred Outa, Hon. Olago Oluoch, Kisumu Town West, and Governor Jack Ranguma.

According to photos posted online, the leaders were welcomed to Ruto's camp after seeing Ruto at his office in Karen.

This is a serious setback for ODM party leader Raila Odinga, whose Azimio camp has already lost a number of MPs, including those from the UDM party who defected and formed a working agreement with Kenya Kwanza last week.

Raila, who has already petitioned Ruto's victory at the Supreme Court, is relying on lawmakers from his native Nyanza region to increase his support in parliament. If the court rules in his favor and orders a rematch with Ruto, however, this will further impede his goals.
