Kakamega governor Wicliffe Oparanya has extensively drummed up support for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga.

Speaking at Nyasore primary school, Rachuonyo East sub county in Homa Bay county on Monday, Oparanya expressed confidence for a Raila victory.

“You know very well that personally I have been very close to baba all along since I joined parliament in 2002 and fortunately, I have been in elective politics since 2002 up to this moment,” he said.

Oparanya was attending the burial ceremony of Kenyan envoy to Qatar Paddy Ahenda who passed on recently.

The governor has been an instrumental figure in the Raila Odinga’s kitchen cabinet and he committed himself in the presence of Raila to aid him clinch power in the August polls.

“Let me assure you people of Nyanza, Mulembe nation is locked for Raila Amollo Odinga,it is completely locked and I want to assure you baba, for the first time you are going to get many MPS from western Kenya.This is because of the respect they have for you , what you have done for this nation,” Oparanya noted.

The governor who doubles up as the deputy party leader of ODM is a key ally of Raila from the western political space.

“The time I have been with baba, I know this is a man who has sacrificed alot for this country and the only gift we can give him is to be the best 5th president of the republic of Kenya,” he added.

The requiem mass was attended by ODM leader Raila Odinga along dozens of his brigade.

Raila besieged the Nyanza voters to vote for the ODM party in a 6 piece model so that the party can clinch all the available slots(MCA, woman representatives, MPs, senators, governors and president.

The ODM leader also eulogized the late Paddy Ahenda as a true diplomat who was determined to use his position to lobby for a better social-economic progress of this country.
