According to Aburi who is linked with the National Ordinary People's Empowerment Union Party, despite the leaders from Mount Kenya rallying behind Raila, they will not fold their parties.
As quoted by the Star on Tuesday, Aburi alludes that Raila's following in the region has been increasing each day, after the leaders convinced their residents that the Raila who have been demonized for years was not the Raila of today, further alleging that Ruto's support has decreased.
"Even though we are in other political parties, we will support Raila Odinga. The best thing for us to do now is to remain in our parties and mobilize people to join him towards the election time."
"Raila is now climbing Mount Kenya while the other guy (DP Ruto) is losing support. The ODM party leader only needs 30 per cent of Mt Kenya and we will be there," added Aburi.
His remarks comes before the official opposition leader convenes a mega meeting at Kasarani on Friday December 10 where he is expected to announce his 2022 ambitions.
This comes after he toured different region of the country popularizing his Azimio La Umoja initiative.
