Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), has taken a huge setback after President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that he will not campaign for him ahead of the August 9th election.
Uhuru would not go to the ground to campaign for Raila Odinga, according to Jubilee Party Vice-Chairman David Murathe, because he has already done his job in ensuring that Jakom becomes Kenya’s next President.
“Uhuru got things started. The infrastructure is in place, but the President will not campaign on the ground. “His absence during Raila’s running mate’s introduction was planned to allow the aspirant to run his campaign,” Murathe explained.
Since he is leaving office in less than 90 days, impeccable State House insiders claim Uhuru would instead focus on his legacy.
“He wants to finish his legacy, and he will not campaign for any presidential candidate,” a State House source said on condition of anonymity.
