Kimilili Member of Parliament(MP) Didmus Barasa has called on prayer warriors to intercede for Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya alliance Raila Odinga.

Speaking in Kericho, the lawmaker who had accompanied President Ruto for an interdenominational prayer and thanksgiving service says Raila, who has been eying Kenya's top seat for the last 25 years in vain, should not miss eternal life.

"Tuombee former prime minister (Raila Odinga), baada ya kutafuta kiti cha urais kwa miaka 25 na kukosa, ufalme wa mbinguni asikose," he stated.

Loosely translated as "(Let's pray for the former Prime Minister that after missing Kenya's presidency, he will not miss heaven).

Raila blames International community.

Raila suffered a low blow after the Supreme Court threw out his petition and upheld William Ruto's win.

In a recent development, he claimed that the international community had a hand in his loss as it was biased in the August presidential election.

The former Azimio presidential flag bearer claims the international community was uncomfortable with his bid for the country's top job because of his plan to tame market monopolies dominated by western countries.

He alleged that foreign powers spearheaded a conspiracy to ensure Kenya Kwanza Alliance Leader William Ruto was declared President.

"The international monopoly capital is uncomfortable when you are talking about making Kenya a manufacturing hub to supply Eastern and Central African regions. Those people are not happy with you when you talk about beneficiation and value addition to local raw materials that will compete against international monopoly capital," Raila said.

"That is why they don't want us to go in there, but we cannot forever remain servants of international monopoly capital. Africa must rise."
