Ngunyi is one of the popular public figures and polical analysts who have been drumming up support for Azimio la Umoja Presidential candidate and Uhuru's preferred successor Raila Amollo Odinga. Prior to the election, he predicted a big win for Raila Odinga against William Ruto. He then fronted Azimio's move to contest Presidential results in the Supreme Court after election, and will be hoping judgment is made in favour of Raila Odinga as that would be the only way to stop Ruto's Presidential ambition.
