BBC News has revealed why National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga decided to withdraw from the repeat presidential election.

 

The British news website on Tuesday stated that the move by the Opposition leader was all part of a strategy to secure his legacy as Kenya’s political reformer.

 

“The withdrawal could be a strategy for Raila Odinga to exit the political scene on his own terms while the annulment of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in the 8 August election was a much-needed political high for Mr Odinga,” the author of the article Dickens Olewe opined in his piece titled Kenya’s Raila Odinga quits election re-run.
Mr Olewe stated that Odinga felt vindicated for challenging the election and pushed for changes to the electoral system as a condition for his participation in the re-run.

 

“With President Kenyatta’s party having won a majority of MPs in both houses of parliament, it is likely that Mr Odinga was headed for another defeat and that would be too much for a man, who has been nicknamed the enigma,” he stated.
