Ida Odinga has officially endorsed Westlands Member of Parliament Tim Wanyonyi for the Nairobi governor seat in the 2022 general elections.

Ida defined Wanyonyi as an intelligent and experienced politician who is qualified to manage Kenya's capital.

"He has been a councillor and an MP for two terms. Do you want him to go with just that? If he has got a dream, let him dream and we can help him achieve it," Ida said.

Ida made the remarks while presiding over a graduation ceremony at Kibondeni College of Catering and Hospitality in Muthangari, Westlands. 

Ida's endorsement comes as Wanyonyi declared his interest in the seat on an ODM ticket.

Other leaders intending to vie for the seat include the current Senator Sakaja, Margret Wanjiru, and others.
