An ally of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga claims that she has been updated by her friend Joseph Mugwe that most Kenyans are supporting the presidential bid of Deputy President William Ruto at the moment but the ultimate president will be Raila.

In her latest remarks, on her official Facebook account, after remaining politically silent for weeks, Gatundu North MP Wanjiku Kibe stated she is well informed that the ground has shifted allegiance to Ruto over factors she did not mention.

Kibe, who has been an ardent supporter of Odinga and a member of the Kieleweke political faction, stated that the likely candidate to clinch the presidency remains to be Raila Odinga, according to the briefing she received.

"Good morning good people. I've been properly updated and briefed by my friend Joseph Mugwe that .....while I was away it was so decided that.....The Ground is Ruto and President is Raila! 😍.Tuendelee na muoyo huyo huyo wa Azimio la Umoja Kenya Moja," her post read in part.

Kibe, a first-time MP, has always vowed to continue supporting Odinga's Azimio La Umoja initiative, which entails consultative peacekeeping forums that are intended to unite Kenyans from all political divide.

Odinga launched the Azimio la Umoja unity call on August 17, 2021, in Nakuru and has since been going around the country meeting different groups of people as he popularises it.

He has since denied that the initiative is his early campaigns to woo Kenyans to vote for him come August next year.
