Raila told to Support Ruto in 2027 in Gratitude for President Backing His African Union Job

Tana River Senator Danson Mungatana has commended President William Ruto’s government for backing Raila Odinga’s candidacy for the African Union Commission chairmanship.

Mungatana views Ruto as demonstrating statesmanship by advocating for the opposition leader to assume the role of AU chief.

Addressing attendees at a grassroots Oversight Meeting in Hola Town, the senator urged Raila to reciprocate by endorsing the president for re-election in 2027.

Mungatana contended that Ruto supported Raila’s presidency in 2007 and has now reconciled political differences by advocating for his appointment to the AU position.

“I want to plead with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga that in 2007 William Ruto supported you in your presidential bid even if you did not succeed, now 17 years later in 2024 Ruto again is helping you to become African Union Commission Chairman we urge you, when the time comes in 2027, you should also give back the hand,” he said.

The Senator stated that Raila’s campaign is critical in regional politics, and that Kenya will benefit more from the victory.

“We would like to congratulate President William Ruto because his government has taken a stand to support Raila to vie as African Union Chairman of the African Union Commission, it’s an important position because it will help us as Kenyans,” Mungatana stated.

He went on to argue that such a regional position would be difficult to achieve without the government’s support.

Mungatana revealed that the President has formed a National Committee to lobby African countries for regional support.
