In a Facebook post by the current Gatundu North Mp Wanjiku Kibe, the mp noted that Ruto is popular on the ground as compared to Raila. however the mp went on to declare that even if the ground is Ruto, the presidency belongs to Raila.
With this type of statement from political it makes one wonder whether the elections will be free and fair. Wanjiku Kibe who is a former ally of the ODM party leader seems to have take a stand that her constituents will support the former premier.
Raila has been going around the country popularising his azimio la umoja campaign a tool he has denied as early campaigns. the first time member of parliament has declared that she will continue to support the former premier’s unity call.
The ODM party leader has stated that he will declare his bid for the presidency on 9th December 2021. This declaration will be followed by the azimio la umoja national convention.
As most politicians are fond of saying ” tunasikiza ground” it seems like that is the move the former premier is taking with his rallying call.
With more and more politicians ditching the BBI and kieleweke for UDA party, Wanjiku remains among the few Political leaders in the large central region who have not ditched the kieleweke camp.
It is a wait and see game if Raila will clinch the presidency in the next coming general elections. As we near the general elections each day, Kenyans are asked to embrace peace and love amongst themselves.
Peace should be the rallying call of all leaders as we try to salvage our country from the effects of the Covid 19 and corruption.
