Kenya: Joshua Sang Endorses Raila for President

Former Kass FM presenter Joshua Sang has endorsed Prime Minister Raila Odinga for president in next week's election. He made the endorsement in Nairobi.

Sang who is among four other Kenyans facing criminal charges at the International Criminal Court for allegedly perpetrating the 2007-2008 post election chaos.

In his endorsement of Odinga, Sang said that the PM is the best candidate to take the reigns from President Kibaki. "I believe Raila is a pragmatic candidate who can unite this country, implement the constitution and deliver dignified lives for all Kenyans," Sang said.

Sang, who hails from Trans Nzoia County, had previously expressed interest in running for the position of senator but shelved his ambitions to concentrate on the court case.
