The East African Legislative lawmaker Oburu Odinga has revealed that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga may work with Deputy President William Ruto ahead of 2022 general elections.
While speaking to KTN News, Oburu said that the two have their own political differences but nothing can stop his younger brother from working with the DP Ruto.
“When the appropriate time comes, Raila will form an alliance and those talking now will be surprised,” Oburu said.
He said that Raila will make his next political move after the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill process has been concluded.
His sentiment comes after some National Super Alliance (NASA) principals had formed another political pact with other political leaders ahead of 2022 general elections.
Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka had revealed that he has joined forces with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula.
“We came here to show that Mudavadi, Wetang’ula and Gideon will walk as one from now till the 2022 polls,” Kalonzo said.
Oburu noted that the current political alliances being formed are bound to fail, stating that it is too early to form political alliance.
“If you look at those formations, how will they be sustained and taken forward when there is no identity? Even if one of them says that they want to be president, who will lead in their alliance? It is too early to have the formations, they are not sustainable,” Oburu said.
Raila had said that he has worked with Ruto before and if situations will force, then he will have to work with him again.
“They say politics make strange bedfellows. So we have worked with Ruto before and if circumstances will conspire then I will have to work with him again,” Raila said.
