"You Will Regret If You Don't Support Raila Odinga..." ODM Party Warns the OKA

ODM leaders have told off the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals in their presidential bid, warning that its leaders will regret failing to support former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

ODM deputy leader Wycliffe Oparanya has called on OKA leaders to abandon their bid for the presidency and instead support ODM leader Raila Odinga in the 2022 general election.

The ODM deputy leader, has called on Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Moses Wetang'ula to reverse their decision to run for office and instead work with Mr Odinga.

The governor has promised that Mr Odinga will only run for one term and then let another politician predict that one of the Western leaders will inherit the seat from him in 2027.

Mr Musyoka, Mudavadi and Wetang’ula were allies of Mr Odinga in the former NASA alliance before the dispute blamed Mr Odinga for failing to comply with the agreement they had in the 2017 elections.

However, Mr Oparanya said the three would be the biggest losers as the presidential race has already taken its toll and is between Mr Odinga and Deputy President Dr William Ruto.

"At the moment, Mudavadi cannot attract enough votes to win the presidency. He should support Raila Odinga who has promised to lead for one term only and then one from the Luhya community will inherit the seat, ”said Mr Oparanya, who was speaking at the Lugari constituency.

The governor, who also served as Butere's MP, said Mr Odinga was "very good at taking the lead" and that he was a good leader as he understood the historical and political problems facing the country.
