President Uhuru Gets a Life Line as Governors Issue Tough Conditions on Raila 's Presidency

President Uhuru has finally received lifeline support for his retirement after Presidency as Mt Kenya governors issue tough conditions to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga if he want the support of the region for his 2022 statehouse bid.

Led by Nyandarua County Governor Francis Kimemia has urged ODM leader Raila Odinga to secure President Uhuru Kenyatta's interests, life and property once he takes over as the next president.

Adding that for them they are ready to campaign for his statehouse bid including moving around the Mountain region telling the people truth about the demonization against the former Opposition.

"It's time to tell Kenyans that all those negative things we said about Raila Odinga were just Politics," Governor Francis Kimemia has said.

Nakuru Governor Hon Lee Kinyajui has also asked the ODM Leader on the need to ensure that when he wins over the government in the year 2022, then he should ensure he battle out corruption expanding that "There is no Nation that has ever prospered with corruption."

Odinga's presidency has been issued with tough conditions from those close to the Head of State including Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe who had informed that they want Odinga to serve as a transition President who will after a one-term rule hand over to a younger generation.

"We think it’s time Kenyans rewarded the years of struggle of Raila Amollo Odinga. They owe it to him. It’s like Mandela, and 2022 will be a Mandela Moment. And we would also like to tell him (Raila) to be a transitional president who will then nurture the young generation to take over in 2027,” he said.
