At NTV post-interview on Sunday with Raila Odinga after the broadcasting, the ODM boss said he has no problem with Deputy President William Ruto and they may work together in future.


However,  he maintained that NASA died after they failed to secure the Presidency in 2017.

During the Sunday interview, Raila continued remaining dumb on an alleged 'secret deal' between himself and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka where he was to hold the Wiper leader for the Presidency in 2022.

"I do not want to talk about that. I do not know the context in which Kalonzo talked about it... I do not want to discuss it," Raila said.


However, in the interview, Raila maintained that the relationship with Deputy President William Ruto is still intact and they are not enemies at all.


"I am the one who appointed him as Minister for Agriculture and, thereafter, Higher Education. We are not enemies at all," he said.

The ODM leader's views come at a time when calls for his candidature in the 2022 presidential ballot grows.

The recent endorsement for a Raila Presidency in 2022 came from Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe and Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli.

"President Kenyatta and I have said we don’t want to talk about 2022. We want to come up with reforms that will make it possible for this country to transition," he said.

"We don’t want to pick leadership. We want to create a conducive environment so that Kenyans can get proper leadership. There are limits to abusive power, and that is what BBI is aimed at achieving."
