The Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) president and Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Richard Ngatia has rallied the business community behind the candidature of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.

Ngatia who is the Chairman of business persons drawn from the 12 countries in the great lakes region are supporting Raila who serves as the African Union (AU) Infrastructure Special Envoy in developing the region as Kenya’s presdent.
“We have looked keenly and carefully and asked ourselves questions on who we can trust in leading us in improving Kenya’s and the region’s economy and settled on Raila Amollo Odinga as the best bet,” said Ngatia.
Addressing the AZimio la Umoja rally in Ugenya, Ngatia said the business community will campaign and fund Raila’s campaigns as they are assured that with a Raila presidency businesses will grow.
