Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has officially endorsed opposition leader Raila Odinga to succeed him in the presidential elections set for 9 August.

President Kenyatta urged his supporters to back Mr Odinga's bid saying that he had the best interests of the country at heart.

He said Mr Odinga understood where the country was heading, and that he would therefore be at peace to hand him the "leadership mantle".
This will be the fifth time Mr Odinga is running for president, and many believe it will be his last.

He will vie under the Azimio la Umoja (Swahili for "pledge of unity") alliance, which is made up of 10 parties, including his Orange Democratic Movement and Mr Kenyatta’s Jubilee.

The president's backing of Mr Odinga has led to the political isolation of Deputy President William Ruto, who will also be seeking the presidency under the United Democratic Alliance.

The president and his deputy have been estranged since the president reconciled with Mr Odinga in the aftermath of the 2017 election.
