08 August 2016, 12:10

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has said that he is ready to step down and back someone else in the 2017 Presidential election.

Raila, who is the official opposition leader, has unsuccessfully tried his bid for the House on the Hill thrice before.

In an interview with Standard, the opposition chief said he would back another candidate who proved to be better placed to remove Jubilee from power in the upcoming election.
