ODM chief Raila Odinga says he will not endorse anyone ahead of the 2022 presidential election.

The ODM leader said this on Saturday about a request by Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula and Wiper Democratic Movement’s Kalonzo Musyoka, for him to back one of them.

The three-spoke during campaigns in Western Kenya last week, saying they have advanced many political years in Mr Odinga and that it is time for him to reciprocate the favour.

KANU boss Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, who was present during the campaigns, said Mr Odinga has run out of political bullets’ and therefore needs to let someone else take over.

Mr Odinga, without specifying his attack, said, however, that he shall not pay attention to any request by “people who want to extend their political mileage” and that he is not politically accountable to anyone.

"There were leaders who stood with me when I was campaigning until we got to the ballot. They, however, withdrew when I decided to be sworn-in. I was looking around for them but none could be found," Mr Odinga said in the Luo language.

"Why do they need me now when they ran away at the time I wanted them the most? I will not pass the baton to anyone,” he stated.
