Edwin Sifuna Alleges Number of Votes Raila Will Get From Mt Kenya in 2022 After Tycoons Endorsed Him

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General Edwin Sifuna now alleges that the former Prime Minister will get at least 60 per cent of Mount Kenya Region votes in 2022.

According to Sifuna the endorsement of Raila by Mount Kenya Foundation leaders and 'indirect support' by President Uhuru Kenyatta is a plus to Raila's presidential bid.

Speaking with KTN News on Wednesday, Sifuna claimed that the online opinion polls have affirmed that the support of Raila in Mt Kenya and in different regions across the country was increasing.

"Several polls have shown that Raila's support has been increasing steadily. We have every reason to believe that by the time we are going to the next elections, Raila will not get less than 60 per cent of the votes in Central Kenya and that is what we are working on."

'We are not taking it for granted like our opponents. We are banking on the wings of change and we appreciate every step we make," said Sifuna.

His comment comes hours after Mt Kenya tycoons settled on Raila as their preferred candidate despite meeting OKA principals and Upya movement leaders few weeks ago.

This also comes a day before Raila announces his presidential bid in meeting that will take place on Friday December 10 in Kasarani.
