A big blow to Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga after Machakos governor Alfred Mutua leaked his secret plans ahead of the 2022 general elections.
Speaking to local TV station, Mutua said he has been attending Raila’s Azimio la Umoja rallies because he admires his push to unite Kenyans regardless of their tribe or gender.
Mutua, however, maintained that his quest to run for the country’s presidency in 2022 is still on and he hopes ODM leader Raila Odinga will support his bid.
He further alleged that he is ready to work with Raila in the future when the time is ripe to form a coalition. He believes that when that time reaches, the ODM cheif will support his presidential dreams.
We have worked together and you will see more coalitions coming together and people joining hands… When push comes to shove I hope Raila Odinga will support me,” he told the TV station in an interview.
The governor revealed that if he doesn’t vie for the presidency come next year, he will vote for Raila for the top seat.
