Search For A Running Mate For Raila Narrows Down To 3, Names Revealed


Anxiety about who the ODM party leader Raila Odinga will pick as his running mate continues to increase as he is set to officially announce his 2022 presidential ambition on December 10th at Moi International Sports Center Kasarani.

While speaking on Citizen TV, Orange Democratic Movement party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna was evasive to explain the running mate puzzle.

“He has not shared his thoughts yet. The issue of running mates is not a discussion of today nor the 10th because there is a lot of consideration that goes into a deputy,” said Sifuna.

However, Raila’s insiders who spoke to Daily Nation on condition of anonymity disclosed that the search for a running mate for the former prime minister has narrowed down to three.The three are said to be Martha Karua, Peter Kenneth, and Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui. Of the three, only Peter Kenneth and Lee Kinyanjui have been travelling across the country with Raila for his Azimio la Umoja campaigns.

According to the source, the ODM boss is warming up to the rich vote Mount Kenya region with the promise of a running mate coming from the region.

The country’s next Deputy President is expected to come from the three in case Raila wins the general election in August 9th 2022.
