Is Raila misusing Gaucho, the self-proclaimed Ghetto President? – He still lives in Kayole despite being a die-hard supporter
Calvince Okoth, also known as Gaucho, who self-proclaims himself as the “Ghetto president”, has expressed his support for Raila Odinga, a prominent Kenyan politician, after rumors circulated that he had left the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party due to internal conflicts.
Gaucho had a lunch meeting with Raila and other key figures in the ODM party where they discussed an upcoming rally in Machakos.
After the meeting, Raila blessed Gaucho.
Sharing the photos of his Tuesday meeting with Raila, Gaucho wrote, “Met Baba H.E Raila Odinga, Deputy Party Leaders Hassan Joho, Wycliffe Oparanya and Junet Muhammed as we deliberated on the planned Machakos Rally.
We also consulted on internal party affairs and he blessed me as his loyal soldier to continue with the liberation journey. Bado mapambano,”
Gaucho has a long history of supporting Raila, and although he still resides in Kayole, he is considered a loyal supporter. It is reported that Gaucho relies on financial support from politicians to sustain his livelihood.
