Joho reveals what will happen in ODM if Raila joins 2022 presidential race

I will be the president of Kenya

Speaking in an interview on Citizen TV, Joho said that he would be eyeing for the top seat under Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) ticket, taking over from Raila Odinga who is the party chairman.

“I want to be the president of this country come next general election because am the deputy party leader of ODM, the party which is influential in the country and that’s what gives me the drive towards wanting to be president,” said Joho.

The Mombasa Governor said that his party leader had not told him not to vie for the presidency in favour of anyone in the party, adding that should Raila opt to also vie, then they would sit down and come up with a solution.

“My party leader has not told me not to run, and I know democracy has many dimensions and am sure Raila stands for his word when he said he will retire from politics, and should he change mind then we will sit down and talk”

The handshake

On his tour to Baringo County, in Kapsabet to visit retired President Daniel Moi, Joho said that he went to appreciate Moi for the work he had done for the country.

Joho added that he was also seeking to extend his friendship and unite all Kenyans across the country.

"I must go beyond the coastal region and talk to other Kenyans and it is my interest is to walk and talk with influential people in the country like Gideon Moi," he said.
