“Stop Avoiding Raila And Take Him To Mt. Kenya,” Uhuru Cornered, Asked To Acknowledge The Former PM

President Uhuru Kenyatta has not been there for Orange Democratic Movement Leader Raila Odinga during the latter`s visits in Mount Kenya even for a single function yet Raila took Uhuru to Kisumu, Mr. Kevin Osido, a Governance expert has raised eyebrows in the face of the highly anticipated 2022 general elections.

Mr. Osido claimed that Uhuru has been avoiding Raila`s move to Mount Kenya amid the current divide in the aforementioned region between Jubilee Party supporters and those supporting Deputy President William Ruto`s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party.

The split was reported in 2018 after Raila got into the government through the controversial handshake between him and Uhuru, resulted to DP Ruto being axed from major operations in the government and all his allies were kicked out of top offices.

In the race to get the support from the Mountain, both DP Ruto and Raila has been seen trying to sell their manifestos to the residents in Central region with DP Ruto been seen as the might following the recent by-elections he managed to win using the UDA Party.

Raila who was reported to be allegedly waiting for the endorsement from Uhuru, was asked to familiarize himself with the Mountain, paving way for criticism from DP Ruto and his allies who mocked him for waiting to be given the seat instead of going to the field.

On Tuesday, October 5, 2021 while speaking on TV 47, Mr. Osido questioned Uhuru`s move in avoiding to accompany and publicize Raila in his home town, yet the Former Prime Minister had already taken the head of state in Kisumu.

“There is no single rally that President Uhuru went with Raila yet, Raila took the President to Kisumu. The President should take Raila to Mt. Kenya and talk about how he stood with him when things were thick,” he said.
