The country’s top newspapers on Wednesday, February 23 widely reported on the Sagana 3 meeting where President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to meet delegates and endorse ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidency. 

The dailies also reported on Amani National Congress (ANC) boss Musalia Mudavadi’s move to UDA with political pundits arguing that the move has no impact on Deputy President William Ruto’s popularity in the Western Region.

Businessman Jimi Wanjigi recently stated that he must attend the ODN National Delegates Conference slated for Saturday, February 26. 

In a press statement, the businessman noted that he is an active member of the party and no one has the right to stop him from attending the meeting. 

Wanjigi also accused some quarters in ODM of trying to frustrate him since announcing that he would contest for the country’s top seat under an ODM ticket. 

The Star 

The daily highlighted the impact that Amani National Congress (ANC) boss Musalia Mudavadi’s move to Deputy President William Ruto’s camp has had on the DP’s popularity in the Western region.  

According to opinion polls, Mudavadi’s political move is still debatable as his move has not increased the DP’s popularity, especially in Western Kenya. 

A Tifa poll showed that Raila had gained in Western by 10 points to stand at 31%, Ruto, on the other hand, only gained two points and his popularity now stands at 28%. 

The Standard 

The newspaper highlighted President Uhuru Kenyatta’s highly anticipated meeting at the Sagana State Lodge today where he is set to ignite a political euphoria in the Mt Kenya region. 

During the meeting, the Head of State is also set to disclose why he fell out with his deputy, William Ruto whom he sidelined in 2018 following his handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga. 

The newspaper reported that by the evening of Tuesday, February 22, leaders from the Tanga Tanga faction had not received invitations into the meeting.
