Although Nyeri Kabando's senatorial candidate Wa Kabando says that winning the president remains difficult, ODM leader Raila Odinga appears to be getting closer.
Kabando said winning the chair is always difficult and Raila will have to work harder and possibly adopt a different strategy to succeed.
He said he was among those voters who would support the candidate on August 9 despite his predictions that the former prime minister would lose his seat around this time.
Kabando believes this is the veteran politician's last run for president and he needs to work hard to get it right before he retires.
“If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. If you find yourself on a cliff, stop moving forward. Reflect. Raila's best chance at Ikulu is definitely a ninth. He wins or he loses. The RAO has my vote, but will we Tinga regroup to secure an elusive win before that? "He tweeted. Mukurweini's former MP is also a supporter of Raila's running mate Martha Karua, whom he is running for in the Narc Kenya party to succeed Senator Ephraim Maina.
Prior to his selection, he was among those fighting for Karua, believing his inclusion in the Azimio La Umoja team would provide Raila with the support needed to win.
In the past, he has vehemently opposed Mr Odinga, even predicting defeat to Deputy President William Ruto on election day.
"They will never trust you because they don't know you. Because you are 'old and weak and meek', they will try to 'trap you' for their greedy needs. At 6 am you will be defeated by a "Hustler". “In July, he tweeted.
Raila had run for president four times before and lost in every case. He has blamed three of his losses on bug fixing and foul play.
