Section of Kiambu leaders agree to back Raila’s State House bid
A section of leaders from Kiambu County have agreed to put aside their differences and support ODM leader Raila Odinga in the August 9 general election.
The leaders, who addressed a political rally at Thika Stadium, said Raila was the best person to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta because he understands how to better the economy.
Led by Governor James Nyoro, the leaders said Raila has a history of agitating for the welfare of all and has a heart of service.
"We have accepted to walk the journey with Raila as he has the answers to our economic wellbeing. Mount Kenya region has united and it's now clear that Raila is the 5th President," Nyoro said.
His sentiments were echoed by Kiambu town MP Jude Njomo who stated that unlike the past, Mt. Kenya residents are more enlightened and will put all their votes in Raila's basket.
"The time of fighting Odinga is gone. The past is gone and the future is here. We have all resolved to support Raila as he has the answers to many of our economic challenges," Njomo said.
