'We Won't Support You' Muslim Leaders Tells Raila Days after His Rally in Mombasa

Religious leaders in Mombasa who supported ODM leader Raila Odinga have made a sudden u-turn after realizing what the opposition camp was plotting.

Sheikh Muhdhar Khitamy has said that they can't continue supporting Raila after he went ahead to declare Monday, 20 a public holiday. He argues that elections were over and it was time to unite the country and support Ruto.

He said that Raila is a " perennial loser in the presidential elections, who has refused to accept the outcomes more than four times after being defeated."

Despite their remarks that Mr Odinga was an everlasting loser having lost in polls for more than four decades, they urged him to seek justice from court and not through protest.

Khitamy warned Kenyans to be wary of politicians who are hellbent on using them for their own selfish gains.

The Muslim leaders change of tune comes days after Azimio held a rally in the Coastal region on Saturday and Sunday. Raila camped in Mombasa before heading to Kilifi where he was received by a mammoth crowd.
