Raila planning to support another candidate in 2017

08 July 2016, 08:05 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has been holding secret meetings with Amani National congress (ANC) leader, Musalia Mudavadi in what close Mudavadi aides are saying is aimed at crafting a strategy which will see Raila support Mudavadi in next year's polls.

According to ANC chairman Nakuru branch Simon Wesile, Raila is deeply considering opting out of the 2017 polls to Mudavadi and Kalonzo whom he highly believes can defeat UhuRuto at the polls.

Wesile said that in what might surprise many, Raila might make the unexpected decision of supporting Mudavadi.

Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru, Wesile said that Raila's political star is dimming and he is keen to avoid another embarrassment at the ballot by supporting Mudavadi.

"There are meetings going on and things are being worked on and we will see what that yields but I know Raila has that option of supporting Mudavadi and he is considering it," said Wesile.

"He sees Mudavadi as the best placed person to get Jubilee out of power and wants to use him to do that because his main aim is to see Jubilee out of power," he said.

"Raila knows that his chances of winning 2017 are minimal and that is why he sees Mudavadi and Kalonzo as the best candidates to battle it out with Jubilee," he said.

Mudavadi has been calling on Raila to support his presidential ambitions as a way of appreciation the support he (Mudavadi) has given him in the past.
