ODM leaders in Kilifi county have dismissed critics of the endorsement of Raila Odinga by President Uhuru Kenyatta as the Azimio presidential candidate. 

Led by former Devolution CAS Gideon Mung’aro and Kilifi Senator Stewart Madzayo, the leaders said Uhuru had every right to openly endorse Raila as his candidate of choice.

They vowed to support Raila to become the fifth president of Kenya.

The event was attended by hundreds of supporters, including aspirants vying for MCA, parliamentary and woman representative positions.

Mung’aro said for the last 60 years Kenya has been ruled two communities.

He further said if the former Prime Minister becomes president, he will set the pace for other communities.

Mung'aro asked Kilifi county ODM members to vote for him as the governor candidate in the oncoming nomination exercise set for next month.

Madzayo also said "Kenyatta has a right to support any candidate of his choice to become president of Kenya."

He urged Kilifi residents to vote for Mung’aro as he was the only one able to take the county forward in terms of development.

Also present was Kilifi Woman Representative Gertrude Mbeyu who is vying for Kilifi North MP and Malindi parliamentary hopeful Amina Mnyazi.
