ODM gubernatorial candidate roots for William Ruto’s presidency

by Amos Khaemba

Narok Gubernatorial candidate Moitalel Ole Kenta like candidates from across leading political formations is finding it hard to ask for votes from opposing sides.

Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi was at one time stopped campaigning with the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga because of the hostility he was receiving.

The veteran politician told Meru residents to vote for the United Democratic Alliance presidential flag bearer William Ruto if they so wish.

On Monday, June 27, the Narok gubernatorial candidate Moitalel Ole Kenta found himself in an opponent’s territory forcing him to root for William Ruto’s presidency.

In a video seen by Kivumbi. co. ke, Ole Kenta is heard calling on the Narok resident to vote for the presidential candidate of their choice yet his party leader, Raila Odinga is one of the leading presidential contenders.

“Ikija mambo ya president, mimi ni mtu wa ODM, sitawambia mpatie mtu wa ODM, nyinyi I watu wa UDA, pea mtu yenu Rais, mimi mnipatie ugavana,” Kenta said.

Loosely translated to, “When it comes to the presidential election, I am an ODM member and you are UDA, just vote for your candidate for president and me as your governor, I have no problem with that”

The gubernatorial candidate said he had no problem if the Narok residents vote for Ruto as he was not asking for the presidential vote.

Kenta, who is the outgoing Narok North MP, is facing stiff competition for UDA candidate Patrick Ole Ntutu.

This comes just days after former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo was captured on video drumming up support for former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

The agitated Kabogo, who was speaking in Thika Constituency on Thursday, June 16, urged residents to consider voting for Raila Odinga as president.

“I am calling on Raila Odinga supporters, when voting for Raila Odinga as President, also vote for William Kabogo as Governor,” he said.
