The Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga enjoys massive support from Nyanza region, with a good per cent of following in Western Kenya despite facing competition from Ford Kenya and Amani National Congress party leaders Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi respectively.
The unveiling of Deputy President William Ruto linked party, the United Democratic Alliance party (UDA) has been giving the well established political parties a run for their money less than four months since it was launched.
The ODM party has tasked its Director of Political Affairs Hon Opiyo Wandayi to approach and convince the former members who ditched the party after Raila unveiled the handshake alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The leaders had hinted of joining Ruto's camp and drum their support for his 2022 presidential ambitions, on claims that Raila had earlier taken their support for granted.
Insiders who spoke with the Standard on Sunday disclosed that ODM officials are planning to engage the residents in coming few weeks after reports surfaced that UDA was slowly making progress in wooing the residents to support Ruto.

UDA officials for the past couple of weeks have been carrying out grassroots mobilizations, with the aim of recruiting a good number of members before 2022 general polls.
