It is on a cold Thursday and the cold political wars between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy Ruto seem to have further escalated, with Uhuru now coming out indirectly, to endorse ODM chief Raila Odinga, for the big seat in 2022.
While launching scathing attacks on his deputy, Uhuru warned Kenyans against electing a power-hungry individual, who is in a hurry to take over from him.
He discredited his DP, comparing him to a sprinter who will not last long in a marathon race and will eventually be overtaken by the old man who moves slowly but steadily.
He warned youths against being used to fight the old, saying age is not a big factor in any good leadership.
It is a speech that elicited mixed reactions among Kenyans, with some coming out in his support while others took time to criticize the son of Jomo.
Do you think Uhuru’s endorsement of Raila will work in favor of the Orange outfit, especially in the Mt Kenya region, or will this ‘betrayal’ instead turn tables, and earn DP Ruto more sympathy votes ahead of 2022?
