ODM Leader has refuted claims he referred to other leaders as dynasties during Gideon Moi’s endorsement as a KANU presidential candidate. 

Speaking at Bomas during the inaugural of Gideon Moi as a presidential candidate for KANU, Raila ignited the dynasty versus hustlers narrative, saying everybody regardless of their background has the right to pursue their political aspirations.

 He particularly urged Moi who is intending to succeed President Kenyatta not to be downplayed by his competitors who mostly refer to him as a dynasty.

"Stand firm and don’t allow anyone to tell you that you are a dynasty. You’re running your own race. Your father Mzee Moi fought for his space and with his hard work he managed to ascend to the presidency," Raila said.

DP Ruto who is also vying for the same seat, he has been using the same narrative in his various tours in the country as he asks Kenyans to vote for a leader who will defend the interests of the middle and low-income earners who he has named as Hustlers.

Odinga hinted he will be on the ballot facing Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka who are all members of One Kenya Alliance.

Moi who has been endorsed by KANU as the party’s flag bearer has been touring various parts of the country to popularize himself with the electorate as he seeks to become the country’s fifth president.

Currently, KANU has 10 members of the National Assembly and three senators in the senate.

The last time the party filled a presidential candidate was in 2002 where the current president was its candidate and lost to former President Mwai Kibaki.

Gideon Moi took over the party’s leadership from President Kenyatta.
