Opposition leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday held a private meeting with Baringo Senator Gideon Moi in Nairobi.

The two leaders discussed among other issues, the ongoing war against corruption and State of the handshake between the ODM leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Though details of the meeting remained scanty, handlers of the two politicians intimated that Odinga and Moi explored the possibility of fielding one candidate in the upcoming Wajir West Parliamentary seat by-election.

ODM’s flag-bearer in the contest is Prof. Mohamed Yussuf Elmi, while KANU has settled on Abdirahman Mohamed against Jubilee’s Mohamed Kolosh whose election was nullified by the Supreme Court.

Mr. Kolosh decamped to Jubilee after his victory was challenged by Ibrahim Sheikh of KANU.

Odinga and Moi have presidential ambitions and are outright opponents of Deputy President William Ruto’s State House bid.

According to political pundits, the meeting between Odinga and Gideon Moi further emboldens speculation that they are working on a political pact, as part of the pre-2022 political realignments.
