Is Raila's time up?

Nairobi - I am going for the Presidency, CORD leader Raila Odinga says.
Odinga has been under fire in recent times over his age as well as capability to actually launch a viable presidential campaign.
And following a Poll which showed that majority of Kenyans feel that he should not vie for the 2017 General Elections, Raila says that he is still of importance to Kenyans.
He further says that he believes that any person saying otherwise is out of touch with reality.
" I will be in the 2017 race and anyone thinking otherwise is out of touch with reality," he said.
He believes that he is the perfect candidate for the Orange Democratic Movement ODM and is aware of the clamour to have him make way, which he feels is misplaced.
" The opinion polls are just that. Opinions of many people but it is not the truth on the ground and I am sure if you go there you will see what people see and feel," he added.
The Poll from Ipsos Synovate said that 64% of people believed Raila should not run for the 2017 elections and 37% felt he should retire.
