ODM Leader Raila Odinga has been assured of the Ukambani vote by Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu.
After a series of Azimio rallies in Machakos County, the county head expressed confidence that the Ukambani region will vote for the former premier to the very last man.
According to Ngilu, the question is no longer whether Raila will win the Ukambani vote, but rather whether there is a vote base that will outperform the region on August 9th.
“Today in Machakos, this is Athiriver. The question is no longer whether Ukambani will vote for Raila Odinga; rather, which region will be able to beat Ukambani turnout for Baba in the August polls. You have been put on notice, Nyanza “she wrote a message.
As he made his political overtures to Machakos county inhabitants, the ODM Leader was joined by Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, and Kitui’s Charity Ngilu.
Raila’s visit to the Ukambani region coincides with a bid to entice Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to join the Azimio train.
Before fully committing to a political union with his erstwhile political friend, the OKA principal, who is the de facto Ukambani kingpin, is alleged to have submitted many demands. Political commentators, on the other hand, believe Raila can rely on the three Ukambani governors to secure a significant portion of the region’s vote.
