According to source near the wiper Boss, Raila was suppose to support Kalonzo’s presidential ambition in 2017. The former Premier However didn’t support Kalonzo but rather went to the ballot with Kalonzo as the running mate . The duo failed terribly again in the hotly contested election. The election petition laid the groundwork for the succession politics of 2022 with major political bigwigs throwing their hat in the ring.
As usual Kalonzo expected Raila to support his bid but instead the ODM party Boss decided to launch the Azimio la Umoja platform which he hopes will propel him to statehouse.
