Raila Odinga meets election losers from Mount Kenya

Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga has held a meeting with politicians from the larger Mount Kenya region.

In the first meeting since losing the August 9 polls to President-elect William Ruto, Odinga was joined by Martha Karua, his running mate.

Most of the politicians in attendance at the meeting lost their respective seats in the just concluded polls.

Sources within the meeting say Odinga thanked the politicians for their support in the polls.

He also expressed confidence the Supreme court will nullify the elections.

“Martha and I had a very positive engagement with Azimio leaders from the Central Kenya region. As Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition, we are committed to a one united Kenya policy. We are walking this path together; we are going to rebuild this country together,” Mr Odinga said.

Among those present at the meeting were Jubilee Party secretary general Jeremiah Kioni who lost to George Gachagua in his bid to reclaim the Ndaragua constituency seat.

Also present was former Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia, former Kieni MP Kanini Kega and Ngunjiri Wambugu, the ex-Nyeri Town MP.

“I appreciate the role you played in the elections. We have a responsibility to build and unite this country and I will work with you to ensure that happens,” said Odinga.

The meeting comes on the same day when retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta was spotted hanging out with Azimio bigwigs in Mombasa.
