Orange for Democratic Movement (ODM) Party leader Raila Odinga is Kenya's political enigma with the vast majority of followers across the country.

The long-serving opposition leader in the country prior to his appointment as the African Union High Representative for infrastructure and development has been Kenya's wave especially in his Nyanza, Western and Coastal regions in which he enjoys 100% support base and structure with his ODM party.

The opposition chief, with the upcoming polls in 2022 seems likely to be grooming an ODM politician for the country's top seat which might see an era 'end' to Odinga reign in the Nyanza region in terms of opposition voice.

Odinga, who has been a frequent visitor to Kisumu County might be embracing Kisumu Governor Prof. Peter Anyang Nyong'o for the coveted seat.

The Kisumu governor who has been on record last year saying he might be seeking for the top seat is an admired leader with his development phase of Kisumu County tipping him for the top seat with Odinga being on the sidelines.

Kisumu has been receiving state resources and attention ever since the March 9th, 2018 handshake between ODM leader Raila Odinga and his political rival president Uhuru Kenyatta an indicator of likely 'surprise' Pick for 2022.

The political unity pact between Odinga and Kenyatta witnessed a major boost of Kisumu with prof Nyong'o being among few ODM politicians frequenting statehouse and president Kenyatta's meetings latest being the meeting with DRC President Felix Tshisekedi.
