In addition, the Senator stated that Mt Kenya region will never support ODM leader Raila Odinga to clinch the top seat come 2022.
“In my letter in January, I warned the President that he has no supports in Parliament, those around him are just duping him. I also warned that a time will come when everyone around him will leave.
