Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria has announced that his party, Usawa Kwa Wote, will support Raila Odinga’s candidacy.

Wa Iria, speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, said the decision was made after his bid to succeed President Kenyatta was scuttled and said that after carrying out intensive research he decided to join the winning team.

While referring to himself as the de facto leader of Murang’a, Wa Iria urged Murang’a voters to give Raila 620,000 votes and to press Raila to give him (Wa Iria) a cabinet position.

“I am the supremo of Muranga county, some are coming there like kings. They have not even proposed a seat for Muranga county. I am finding myself sitting in the cabinet. I am telling the people of Muranga to rally behind me. Let’s give the 620k votes to Raila, We will demand that Raila gives me a cabinet position,” 

According to Wairia, he engaged Raila Odinga because he was the only contender who admitted that an injustice had been meted out on him by the IEBC. 

“When others were celebrating Raila engaged me for 3 hours, we talked man to man. He is the only one who admitted that injustice was metted on me,” Wairia said on Tuesday. 

He claimed Raila also discouraged him from turning his political party, Usawa Kwa Wote, into a resistance movement, instead inviting him into the Azimio fold where their manifestos could be combined.
