Flamboyant city lawyer Donald Kipkoriri has said he weill leave Kenya should ODM leader Raila Odinga fails to win the 2022 presidential election.
Taking to Twitter, on Wednesday, September 1, the lawyer, a known staunch supporter of Raila Odinga revealed that he will opt to go leave in Portugal if the former Prime Minister loses the presidency.
“My 2022 Political Choice: Presidency of Raila Odinga or emigration to Portugal,” he said.
His remarks come barely a week after he said he will vote for Raila Odinga in the 2022 General Election even though the former Prime Minister is yet to officially declare his ambitions for the top seat.
“For the record: I will vote Raila Odinga for President in 2022; my 3rd time voting for him …. To vote any other person will be a Faustian Bargain! (An agreement, bargain, or deal in which a person sacrifices or abandons moral, ethical, or spiritual values in favor of wealth, power, or other benefits) ” he said.
It is understood that Raila is expected to give a fifth stab at the presidency although he has not been very open on this matter.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has been holding a series of political meetings with Raila Odinga and the One Kenya Alliance principals allegedly meant to forge a united opposition ahead of the 2022 presidential election.
In one of the meetings held at State Lodge in Mombasa, the first in command reportedly warned the opposition chiefs Gideon Moi (KANU), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Moses Wwetang’ula (Ford Kenya) that they were at risk of losing the seat if they don’t unite.
Analysts argue that Raila Odinga, having unsuccessfully vied on several occasions for the presidency, is a political machine who cannot be wrestled down easily.
Political analyst Herma Manyora, for instance, believes Raila Odinga will easily beat his formidable competitor William Ruto in the 2022 presidential election.
This, he argues, is because of that the ongoing rift in the vote-rich Mt Kenya region which could work against deputy president William Ruto’s quest for Presidency.
