“Raila Odinga deserves to lead this nation. If he will not be in the ballot for presidency in 2022, then I will be quitting ODM,” said the Likoni member of parliament.
Despite he(Raila Odinga) not making it clear whether he will vie or not, his confidants believe that he is the only man capable of leading the nation.His brother Oburu Odinga said that Raila will be on the ballot and is the man to get the highest seat in 2022.He said that now they have president Kenyatta who is controlling the system and that gives them the assurance that they will occupy the highest seat.
