Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli has endorsed Raila Odinga for President in 2022.

This comes a day after Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe also endorsed Raila, saying Kenyans should reward Raila for the lifetime sacrifices he has made for the country with the presidency in 2022.

“Kenya can produce a good President but I am endorsing Murathe’s decision to back Raila in 2022,” Atwoli said at his Kajiado home, where he hosted Murathe and other leaders.

Murathe visited Atwoli a week ago in the company of Raila, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and Senate Minority Leader James Orengo.

Raila, however, downplayed the visit to Atwoli’s home saying he accepted a personal invite for a nyama choma lunch only to find other prominent politicians there.

Raila said Atwoli is his brother in law and asked Kenyans not to read too much in the visit.
