Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party Leader Raila Odinga has said he will announce whether he will run for presidency or not on December 9.

Raila said he will make the announcement during the last meeting of "Azimio la Umoja" in Nairobi.

"I will announce my candidature when you my soldiers are ready," Raila told Makongeni residents on Sunday.

Raila said his team has so far held meetings in Homa Bay, Kakamega, Turkana, Eldoret, Meru, Embu, Tharaka Nithi, Kajiado, Garissa and Mombasa.

"We are yet to visit the main Mt Kenya region and Eastern part of Kenya. We'll then conclude in Nairobi," he told his supporters.

Raila also hit out at Deputy President William Ruto for early campaigns.

"We are now in the field and ready to face those who have been running up and down selling fake ideas (porojo) to Kenyas," he said.

Raila was accompanied by Makadara MP George Aladwa and former MP Peter Kenneth among other leaders.
