The Former Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga, is having his fifth try at being the next President of Kenya and this is not despite some hurdles that he will have to overcome cleverly if he is to be the fifth President.

The position of running mate has not been settled yet and this has seen several high profile politicians and regions express nothing short of the position in the next Government if Raila is to win the race on August 9th.
However, Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, is facing an acid test from Mount Kenya Leaders who insist that the position has to be left to the region as they are offering the bulk of the support.
Nakuru County Governor, Lee Kinyanjui, intimated that the position has to be for the region and it doesn't matter what county it will be but this has to be a reserve of the Mount Kenya people.
According to The People Daily Newspaper, Lee Kinyanjui insists that the Former Prime Minister has to pick a running mate from the region and they will not settle for anything less than that.
