Coming a month after a handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta that threw the opposition coalition into disarray, there is talk that Mr Odinga wants to contest the top seat, in utter disregard of the pre-election opposition alliance agreement within the National Super Alliance in 2017.
Following the recent rapprochement between Mr Odinga and President Kenyatta, the plot, according to insiders, is for the opposition leader to break new ground in the regions that have eluded him in the past two elections—Central and Rift Valley.
