What you need to know:

  • The DP has to either join the President in backing Mr Odinga’s continental bid but tell his supporters it is part of a strategy to eclipse Mr Odinga from local politics.
  • National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichug’wah, a Ruto ally, also maintained that Mr Odinga is a Kenyan candidate and his bid has nothing to do with joining the government.
  • Gatundu South MP Gabriel Kagombe also revealed that as Kenya Kwanza leaders from central Kenya, they have met and endorsed Mr Odinga’s AUC bid.
