The clergy in Nyanza have welcomed the endorsement of ODM leader Raila Odinga by his party as the Nasa Presidential candidate in the August 8 elections.

Nyanza council of church leaders chairman Bishop Washington Ogonyo-Ngede said Mr Odinga must now lead the Nasa team in crisscrossing the Country in campaigns to ascend to power in August.

He said the Country was in dire need of change of guard to save Kenyans from high prices of basic commodities.

“In January, we the clergy converged at Raila Odinga’s home to pray for him to have an opportunity to lead this Country to the next level and we are glad the Almighty God, through the other four Nasa principals gave him the mandate to fly the opposition flag in the August 8 polls,” Bishop Ngede said.

Mr Odinga was endorsed on Friday during an ODM national convention as the party sought to re-energise itself as it embarks on the homestretch of the race for the August 8 elections.
