Sosion who was nominated on ODM ticket in 2017 further said he ditched Raila Odinga’s party after sensing that it would be so hard for the former Prime Minister to succeed retiring president Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 presidential elections.

“Your excellency we want to believe that you will be a record-breaker as the 5th President of Kenya,” Sosion said.
