Nairobi - CORD and ODM leader Raila Odinga backs beleaguered Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero in his current plight despite his recent misdemeanours, the Standard reports.
Kidero is in danger of losing his gubernatorial seat following a court ruling during the week which said that his election in March 2013 was not in order.
Opinion in Kidero's Orange Democratic Party is split on whether to support him or not following his apparent decision to support candidates from other parties in upcoming by elections.
The report in the Standard though, quoted Raila, who is on a trip to America as saying that despite media reports and mixed signals, he fully supports Kidero and wants the decision on his status to be resolved as soon as possible.
The ruling is set to be made in the coming weeks at the Supreme Court.
