Perhaps, it's clear that Raila Odinga will attempt for the fifth time in 2022 and his foot soldiers are confident that he will win this time round. According to them, Raila Odinga has a good chance this time round because of cordial political relationship with the current president, and therefore, the government machinaries are on his side. It's remembered that his brother Oburu Odinga was quoted one day saying that Raila Odinga has been winning but the "deep-state" has not be on his side. He further said that Raila Odinga now is guaranteed of winning 2022 election because he is being supported by the deep-state. Something that Raila Odinga refuted later and termed it as his brother's opinion.

However, we all know that to vie for presidential seat requires a lot of funds. No one can win that coveted top most seat in the country without enough money to oiled his or her campaign in terms of hiring choppers and and even holding huge political rallies. Notably, the presidential candidates have been getting funds from outside the country and even within the country too.
