The Orange Democratic Movement ODM Party leader Honorable Raila Odinga on Tuesday met with the influential Mt Kenya elites and businessmen including the Royal Media Services RMS chairman S.K Macharia, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, Laikipia Governor Francis Kimemia and Members of Parliament from the rich vote region to discuss the 2022 succession politics.
Raila Odinga's entrance and 'climbing' of the Mountain has been positively received by the leaders and residents especially after entering into the handshake with the President Uhuru Kenyatta. In their speeches, the Mt Kenya leaders hailed Raila Odinga for taking an initiative of opening the talks with the President after the 2017 elections to prevent more intercommunion fights among Kenyans.
The Deputy President William Ruto's interest in the region is seen to be threatened by ODM and this is evident in the recent tweet by the UDA's digital strategist Dennis Itumbi who has criticized the meeting. However, Kenyans have urged the UDA party to stop criticizing Raila Odinga for his successful entry into the Mountain.
