The Right Running Mate Who Could Make Raila Odinga President Next Year

Raila Odinga has limited options for a strong running mate in next year's general elections. His long-term running mate Kalonzo Musyoka has already joined One Kenya Alliance. Kalonzo once said he is not ready to deputize Raila for the third time. Kalonzo launched his Command Centre for next year's elections. Musalia Mudavadi is also hitting the road for the top seat.

The Best Running Mate For Raila Odinga

President Uhuru Kenyatta has not yet made public his support for any presidential aspirant in next year's general elections. Though the president's support will be a major determinant in the presidential race.

Raila Odinga has seen his former strong opposition base being split along tribal lines. It comes after the collapse of the NASA Coalition as National leaders are now banking on the regional votes to take them to the statehouse. What Raila Odinga needs currently is a strong running mate from the Mount Kenya region. And this could be Martha Karua or Justin Muturi, it will be a major boost to his already loaded millions of votes from the Western, Nairobi, and Coastal region.
