Today, Raila Odinga has met over 28 governors across different countries in a retreat that has been held in Naivasha.
Addressing the press, Makueni governor Prof Kivuta Kibwana has delivered good news to Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga saying that the governors have mutually agreed to support Odinga's presidential bid on Azimio la Umoja Movement because he is the father of devolution.

It's good news to Raila Odinga ahead of the August 9th general elections where he is expected to battle it out with the deputy president Dr William in the presidential race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta.
In conclusion, the meeting comes after Odinga launched his presidential bid in Thika stadium in Kiambu County on Saturday. In today's meeting, top governors such as Lee Kinyanjui, James Ongwae, Wycliffe Oparanya and Charity Ngilu have attended the retreat in Naivasha.
