The legislator also explained that the recent meeting between Raila Odinga and representatives from the Mt Kenya region is meant to find him new partners.

“He’s looking for partners from our region. Not followers. And he will engage the region with humility. Not through force or intimidation,” he added.

The meeting overseen by President Uhuru Kenyatta comes a day after the Head of State hinted at supporting Raila Odinga’s presidency.

In one of their tour in Nairobi on September 29, the Head of State expressed confidence in his handshake partner, naming him as his preferred successor.

“Haven’t we experienced peace after we come together with Raila Odinga? Haven’t we experienced development after the peace? Do you want the work to go on? Do you want that work to go on? The choice is yours? Will you make the right decision (in the 2022 General Election)? Will you make the right choice?,” Uhuru addressed Kibra residents.
