Raila Odinga Unsellable? Raila Undoing The Narrative In Mount Kenya

The former prime minister has been sold to the Mount Kenya region as their political enemy for years. This propaganda has been working in the favour of leaders hailing from the region. These particular politician usually want the presidency. This political narrative has always worked against the ODM party leader.

On Tuesday the 26th of September Raila made a tour of several counties. These include Laikipia, Nyeri, Murang'a and Kiambu. In all these he made several stopovers which ended in Githurai market. What has surprised his political rivals is his ability to attract large crowds of people. He does this without coughing off money and mobilization as William Ruto does.

His reception in a formerly perceived ground should worry the Tanga Tanga faction. The group has been campaigning for the deputy president William Ruto for over four years now. Raila is expected to undo their popularity within a few months. By February next year the ground influence should be fifty fifty.
