Friday March 8, 2019-National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, has revealed on whether he will vie for presidency in 2022 or not.
In an interview with Kameme FM on Thursday, Raila, who has unsuccessfully vied for the presidency four times, said he and President Uhuru Kenyatta had resolved to avoid politics to allow the country space to pursue its development goals.
“I do not want to discuss anything to do with 2022 politics. I am yet to decide my position,” Raila told programme’s host Gatonye Mbugua.
He said during the meeting between him and the President which culminated in the March 9, 2018 Handshake, they agreed to shelve personal interests and put the country first.
“We agreed to set up the Building Bridges Initiative committee which, after listening to Kenyans, will bring to us a report,” Raila said.
He denied accusations that his working relationship with Uhuru is a scheme to frustrate presidential ambitions of some politicians.
“We have no business barring anyone from contesting for whichever position. It is Kenyans who will decide whether you are the right person to lead them,” he said.
Asked whether he had abandoned his position as the official opposition leader, Raila said there was nothing to oppose now that even the ruling party is working for change.
