Raila Odinga vows to throw his weight behind William Ruto

13 June 2016, 10:10

Nakuru - Opposition leader Raila Odinga has promised to back Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential bid in 2022 if the Kalenjin community rallies behind him in 2017.

The CORD leader also disclosed that he was the official CORD flag bearer in the upcoming general election, The Star reports.

In 2007, Ruto supported Raila in a disputed election that flared into ethnic animosity and the subsequent murder and displacement of thousands of Kenyans.

Ruto was implicated in the violence, in a case that dragged for over 6 years at the ICC.

He accused Raila of framing him at the ICC, and would hence engage him in endless war of words.

Ruto also broke away from ODM and joined President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013, where they agreed to serve two terms each in succession.

However, last week a Jubilee Governor said that Mt Kenya region will not automatically support Ruto for Presidency in 2022.

Since then, Ruto has been cautioned against depending on the MoU that automatically granted him the Kikuyu support after Uhuru Kenyatta's tenure is over.
