Team Handshake : ODM Officially Pulls Out of The Nairobi Gubernatorial Race

The race to succeed Mike Sonko as the governor of Nairobi continues to take shape each passing day.

With Kenyans in Nairobi county expected to go for an election early next year, all fingers remain crossed on who will ascend to the most coveted gubernatorial seat in the country.

While it had long been speculated that ODM might join forces with the ruling Jubilee candidate and field a common candidate, this has now materialized after the latest move by Raila's ODM party.

 

According to a publication by the Daily Nation today, it has now emerged that the Orange Democratic Party has officially pulled out of the Nairobi gubernatorial race.

Daily Nation has established that the Raila led ODM party has now officially opted to back Jubilee's candidate.

 

This was revealed to the Daily Nation by ODM chairperson John Mbadi who revealed that party has been having discussions with Uhuru's Jubilee concerning the election.

 

This is now set to make the Nairobi gubernatorial race more interesting as all eyes would now be directed at DP Ruto to see if he will support his party's candidate or if he will defy his own ruling Jubilee party and field an independent candidate.

 

It had been alleged that Ruto was initially in support of Margaret Wanjiru who had also expressed her interests for the top seat.
