With only months remaining to the highly-anticipated 2022 general elections, well-healed businessmen are showing their tenacity to hijack the financing of the highly expensive presidential endeavour.
Yesterday alone, Homeboyz Entertainment Group via its leadership stole the show after they gifted Odinga state of art landcruisers fitted with in-built public address system and bearing the ODM supremo's image.
There's however was not the first one. From as early as 2007, businessmen have been emerging from the backstage and gaining so much publicity from indulging in the campaign machinery.
In the case of 2007, controversial Kisii businessman cum politician Don Bosco Gichana rose to fame after he donated Raila a multi-million maroon hammer to be used during the high-octane presidential politics where he was battling it out with incumbent president Mwai Kibaki.
In 2013, businessman Jimmy Wanjigi was closely knit in the TNA party funding with details later emerging that he had sealed a deal to construct the standard gauge railway. A deal that never was, forcing him to jump ship to Raila's camp in 2017 to date.
Regarding Homeboyz Entertainment donation, rumour has it that they are strategically positioning themselves to control State House events if at all baba will rise to state house.
According to sources privy with presidential campaign funding, such high levels of courtesy cannot go unrewarded once power is captured by the tycoon's preferred candidate.
