Kenyatta Backs Ex-rival Odinga for President

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has endorsed his former rival, Raila Odinga, as presidential candidate in this year’s elections.

The incumbent, who cannot run again as he has already served two terms, told a crowd of thousands in the capital, Nairobi, that he had no doubt that Mr Odinga was team captain.

Last month the governing Jubilee party joined a coalition headed by Mr Odinga.

In 2018 Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga declared a truce following deadly post-election violence.

The two families have been arch-political rivals for decades.
