Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has been advised by an outspoken Azimio One Kenya Alliance leader not to support former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka as Azimio’s presidential candidate in 2027.
Raila declared on Sunday in Siaya county during the celebration of Siaya Senator Dr. Oburu Odinga’s 80th birthday that because Kalonzo is a trustworthy and God-fearing leader, he is considering endorsing him to replace President William Ruto in 2027.
“Kalonzo has a good heart, is hardworking, and trustworthy; he is also a Christian.” Raila described him as “trustworthy and loving.”
“I heard President Ruto say the other day that he knows I won’t run and that he is ready for Kalonzo.” He refers to Kalonzo as if he is Kalonzo. He merely wants to push us against each other despite the fact that Kalonzo is ten times better than him.”
In response to the declaration, Alliance for Real Change (ARC) party chairman Mwalimu Abduba Dida advised Raila Odinga not to support Kalonzo as Azimio’s presidential candidate.
Dida believes that if Kalonzo is chosen as the Azimio One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate, Ruto will win early, even before Election Day.
“I was drawn to a recent speech by HE @RailaOdinga in which he attempted to endorse @skmusyoka.” If the Professor of Politics takes that terrible move, @WilliamsRuto MUST sweep the floor with them as soon as possible.
“There is no denying that the UDA government has failed. “We need a SOLUTION,” Dida said on Monday on his X platform.
