Influential Rift Valley Governor Defies DP Ruto, Endorses Raila For Presidency

Elegeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos has endorsed the ODM leader Raila Odinga For Presidency.

In a report by Emoo FM, the Governor, who is serving his last term in office, has said he commits his political support to the ODM chief.

According to Tolgos, Raila has no problem given that he is the same man that the Rift Valley region supported in the 2017 polls.

"I'm standing with Raila Odinga until the end, It’s the same man whom we supported in the 2007 elections, I see nothing wrong!" he said as quoted by Emoo Fm.

Governor Tolgos is one of the few leaders from the Rift Valley region who defied the DP and took a different political path.

While it is believed that the DP enjoys massive political support of the region, the few cliques of leaders have deemed him unfit to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Other leaders from the region who is seeking the presidency include Kanu party leader and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
