Raila has been rallying support across the country, attempting to persuade his supporters that if given the chance, he can solve some of the country’s problems, such as unemployment.
With elections just around the corner, some political analysts see him as seasoned and capable of making an impact if given the chance.
Raila’s presidential campaign received a major boost yesterday after major contenders for the top job pledged their support.
Chama Cha Maendeleo leader and Machakos governor Alfred Mutua said at an event in Muranga County that he is willing to work with Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta to make Kenya a better place.
Other presidential hopefuls, such as Peter Kenneth, have stated that they are willing to put their ambitions for the presidency aside in order to ensure that Odinga wins the hearts of the Mount Kenya region.
Wycliffe Oparanya, the governor of Kakamega, who had initially stated that he would run for president, changed his mind and promised Raila his complete support.
As a result, Raila’s main rival, William Ruto, must be concerned, as more politicians join Raila’s camp.
