Kabando Wa Kabando: Raila’s presidential dream is increasingly becoming a reality
Former Mukurweini MP Kabando Wa Kabando has said a Raila Odinga presidency is increasingly becoming a reality.
His sentiments come weeks after the former legislator said that Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto’s hustler narrative resonates well on the ground with the common voter.
According to Kabando, he has met several presidential candidates but the ODM leader is increasingly winning people’s confidence.
While acknowledging the efforts being made by Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto in the 2022 State House race, the former legislator believes that the former Prime Minister would easily beat other presidential aspirants.
"I was privileged to meet and consult William Ruto, Mukhisa Kituyi, Reuben Kigame, and Raila Odinga. One day in politics is eternity," Kabando said.
Kabando went on to claim that even with DP Ruto’s energetic campaign, a Raila presidency is increasingly becoming a possibility.
"Even with William Ruto’s energetic campaign, a Raila Odinga presidency is increasingly becoming a possibility," Kabando said.
Raila is currently in Meru County and has been on a tour of the vote-rich Mt Kenya, popularising himself with the region ahead of the August 2022 elections.
In Meru, Raila promised to ensure residents and farmers from the region and the larger Ameru community get value for their farm produce.
While insisting on value addition at the grass root farming level, Raila said that reforms have been carried out in the tea sector to get rid of monopoly so that farmers can get value for their produce.
The ODM leader further warmed up to the Ameru business community with his plan to create employment for the youth, stating that the youth can either be a blessing or a curse.
He was accompanied by Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi, acting Nairobi governor Ann Kananu, Igembe North MP Maoka Maore, former anti-graft boss Justice Aaron Ringera and former Education assistant minister Kilemi Mwiria.
