This is the story of Raila Odinga’s race for State House that will be determined on March 4th, 2013 when Kenyans go to the polls to elect a new President, a Deputy President, and members of the Senate, the National Assembly and County Assemblies. It traces Odinga’s place in Kenyan politics since the controversial December 2007 general election that results in violence in several parts of the country leaving more than 1,000 Kenyans dead and a half a million others homeless. It looks at the challenges Odinga faces as he puts together a strategy for succeeding President Mwai Kibaki who is serving his last term in office – the challenge of taking on former political allies who parted way with him over the charges brought against four Kenyans by the International Criminal Court at The Hague for masterminding the post-election violence; the challenge of solidifying support within his own Nyanza region even as he reaches out and builds a powerful Coalition for Reform and Democracy out of political parties from other regions, a coalition that gives him confidence of winning the presidential race if not in the first round then in the run-off.
It is a rare story of political drama, commitment and determination that is likely to change the history of the nation whatever the outcome.
