Siaya County Senator James Orengo now says for Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Leader Raila Odinga to get the votes from the Central region, he should be ready to speak in solidarity with the residents of the latter region, adding that, unless that is done, he will be hitting a hard rock.
On Tuesday, October 19, 2021 the Former Prime Minister, Raila, alongside his allies made a visit in Tharaka Nithi in a move to continue with their campaigning scheme as the Country prepares to hold a mega 2022 general elections.
While addressing the residents, Orengo featured the Former PM, saying the latter can easily find his roots in the region if he goes down to the grassroots and speak the same language as the Central region for his bid to succeed.
Orengo asked Raila to fulfil a certain economic percentage of the Central people, claiming that, in so doing he will climb the mountain as easily as it will take and as a result, meet win over the votes.
“I want to tell my Party Leader Hon. Raila Amollo Odinga. It can be very easy for you to climb the mountain till the top, if you only understand their political language and at least fulfill a certain percentage of their economic interests. It is just short and clear,” said Orengo.
Well, in the race to take over President Uhuru Kenyatta`s current seat at the State, Deputy President William Ruto and Raila, remains, without doubt, the heavy weight candidates in the race with both figuring out strategies to win over votes.
The Central region has been reported as the hot cake bed foe which, either DP Ruto or Raila might cling upon to ascend to power amid the current divide courtesies of President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP Ruto`s cold battle ahead of the polls.
