It is on a beautiful Tuesday morning and while the whole of Africa is convened in Nairobi for the Climate Summit, the country’s politics continues to flare.
Azimio’s succession politics are far from over. After endorsing Senate Minority leader Obiyo Wandayi, Siaya Senator Dr Oburu Oginga has made a U-turn and denied making any endorsements, saying he has no such powers.
Oburu on Monday said he has not anointed any politician to take over the mantle from Raila as the next Luo political kingpin.
However, he stated that there was no political vacuum that needed to be filled by anyone.
Do you think its high time for Raila to take the bull by its horns and announce his Luo Nyanza kingpin successor? Who do you think best suits the post?
