"It Will Take a Long Time" Raila Dealt a Huge Blow as Sabina Chege & Kioni Make a U-Turn On His Bid

The former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is determined to pitch his tents in Mount Kenya Region, in the bid to woo the voters for their support in the coming general elections.

The ODM leader has left no doubt that he will be on the ballot, despite taking his time to officially announce his presidential bid.

Over the weekend, Raila make another visit to the region, this time being bold that he was not seeking votes to revenge against the community, adding that he had good things in store for them if he ascends to power next year.

A number of Jubilee MPs who were earlier viewed as supporting his bid have retracted, now making excuses on why Raila is unsellable in the region.

As quoted by the Standard, Murang'a Woman Representative Sabina Chege alleges that the fear of supporting Raila 'RailaPhobia' will only be dealt with if there is a good plan.

"With a good political strategy, nothing is impossible in politics.”

Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni who has been drumming up support for Raila now echoes Chege's sentiments.

"You have to be very careful introducing the truth to a black man who has never previously heard the truth about himself. The brother is so brainwashed that he rejects the truth when he first hears it, you have to drop it on him a little bit at a time."
