Kisii County Deputy Governor Joash Maangi has officially announced his support for the ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid in the 2022 General Elections.
Maangi, who has been rumored to be part of DP Ruto’s team and point man in Kisii, has allegedly trashed such rumors saying, he only supports one candidate, Raila Odinga.
Maangi left massive writing on the wall for online users by gracing the Azimio la Umoja function at the Kasarani Stadium, where supporters of Raila gathered to witness his declaration for the 2022 presidential bid.

This has come as a surprise to many people, who thought he strongly supported DP Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
Kisii Governor James Ongwae and his Deputy Joash Maangi were elected on an ODM ticket in the August 8, 2017, General Elections.
Joash Maangi, who had indicated and pledged to support DP Ruto, has shifted his allegiance, saying he needed to go back to his roots-– Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
Maangi, who is eying the Kisii gubernatorial seat, now says it would be suicidal to clinch the top seat on a UDA ticket in the region dominated by ODM.
The same thing happened in Kilifi County, where Governor Amason Kingi had ditched ODM and formed his Pamoja Africa Alliance.
Kingi now says Pamoja Africa Alliance will support ODM leader Raila Odinga for president in 2022.
