The quest by ODM leader Raila Odinga to court Mt Kenya region may not be a walk in the park if sentiments by some opinion leaders from the region are to go by.

Speaking over the weekend where he had accompanied Odinga to attend a church service in Kabati, Muranga county, business man SK Macharia revealed unlike what many have been thinking, selling a Raila candidate will be a hard thing in the region which has already been polarized.

In particular Macharia said the reality is that Odinga was still far from courting the region.

“You members of parliament from this region, please stop lying to this man. Ground is not on his side. We know who they are supporting but you have continued to lie to him”, .

he told a host of Kieleweke Mps who had accompanied him

Odinga has in the last few months been trying to court the vote rich region.

Last week, speaking to various vernacular stations, Odinga pleaded with the region to back him as he understands what affects them.

“Guys from the Mt Kenya region are my friends, am a person who has interacted with them for the longest time and I know what really affects them”.

he said.

However, Odinga who many think has the blessings of President Kenyatta will not find it easy as Deputy President William Ruto has been crisscrossing the region almost every weekend.

Ruto and his Tanga Tanga brigade has almost moved into every corner of the region selling his hustler narrative.
