In the Mount Kenya region, the governor of Meru, Kiraitu Murungi, plays a significant role in Raila Odinga's presidential campaign. He has supported Raila Odinga's campaign.
Former ardent supporter of William Ruto for vice president, Murungi is currently vying for re-election as the governor of Meru under the banner of the Azimio-led Devolution Empowerment Party.
Murungi most recently characterized William Ruto as friendly and outgoing. Although he had a lot of respect for DP Ruto, he claimed that their political views at the time were divergent.
Yes, I was an avid supporter of Ruto, but it's acceptable to alter one's mind about politics, and governor Murungi said he wasn't ashamed that Raila will succeed Uhuru Kenyatta.
The speaker asserted that, despite the fact that Raila is a decent man, Mount Kenya is in excellent hands with him as the country's next leader.
He added that he would keep supporting Raila Odinga's candidacy.
