"The families of the three former presidents of the republic of Kenya,have declared their interest and support to orange Democratic movement party leader Raila Odinga's presidency," taifa Leo newspaper headline read.

"Sons to the former presidents remain intact to support Raila's Presidency," it added.

This is totally a boost to Raila's presidency as the Kenyan politics is regarded to as the kind of politics which is run by money and gets influence from big families.

With the families of the former presidents all in support of Raila Odinga as the next of kin and uhuru Kenyatta's Successor,this means that the other presidential candidates remain with the only option but look for support from other influential politicians and families in the country for them to secure their interest.
