DAILY POST: I will not vie for the presidency in 2022 – RAILA ODINGA says and urges RUTO to stop linking him to 2022 elections




Thursday December 27, 2018-National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila
Odinga, has told some Jubilee politicians to stop linking him to the 2022
presidential race.

Already some Jubilee politicians led by Elgeyo
Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, have been claiming that Raila will be in
the ballot come 2022.
But speaking during a Christmas service at the
St Peters Anglican Church in Bondo ,Siaya County, the former Prime
Minister sought to clear the air.
He maintained that he is
not a candidate and has not announced his interest for the race and should not
therefore be linked to the same.
“I have never said
that am running for president in 2022, I have not said and I will not say. Let
those people know that I am not a candidate,” Raila said.
The veteran politician also
fired salvos at people over-analyzing his March 9 truce with President Uhuru
Kenyatta on grounds that it has links to the elections.
He noted that the nation is
still fresh from the 2017 polls, urging leaders to shun politicking and
concentrate on service delivery for the time being.
“We will deal with
those issues when the time comes but for now we have agreed with Uhuru to unite
our country. 2022 is still four years again, let those speaking about 2022 give
us a break,” he said.
