Thousands of Kitui county grassroot leaders attended the meeting. Elected leaders and aspirants from the county were also in attendance.
" The leaders unanimously resolved to support my reelection for governor and election of Raila Odinga as the 5th president of Kenya" wrote Kitui governor Charity Ngilu on her official Facebook page.
Governor Ngilu promised to hold a similar consultative meeting next week in Mwingi region.
This endorsement is a big blow to Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka who is also eyeing for presidency. Kalonzo Musyoka hails from the county and today leader's endorsement to Raila Odinga will adversely affect his influence in the region.
Kalonzo Musyoka is expected to tour the county tomorrow for a series of political engagements to woo the region's residents to support his presidential bid.
