Yesterday, over 30 governors endorsed Raila Odinga to vie for presidential bid on the Azimio la Umoja Movement after a retreat that was held in Naivasha and chaired by the ODM party leader himself.
The governors included Prof Kivuta Kibwana (Makueni), Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Alex Tolgos (Elgeyo Marakwet) Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru), Hassan Joho (Mombasa) and many more. The governors took the bold move on the ground that Raila Odinga is the founding father of devolution and the he will promote and respect devolution if elected president.
Makueni governor Prof Kivuta Kibwana, last night revealed that he shelved his presidential bid and endorse Raila Odinga because he consulted with his family and other leaders who advised not him not to vie because he will loose as the other two presidential candidates Dr William Ruto and Raila Odinga were too ahead of him.
In conclusion, Kibwana made the remarks during a live interview with Trevor Ombija on Citizen television.
