Political analyst Herman Manyora has opined that Kenya’s power brokers also known as deep state are considering Raila Odinga to take over the button from President Uhuru Kenyatta so that he can take care of the government as they groom KANU chair, Gideon Moi for the presidency in future.
In his weekly YouTube political analysis program ‘A matter of time’, Manyora said just like retired President Mwai Kibaki was a caretaker president waiting for Uhuru to mature, Raila Odinga will be a caretaker who would lead the nation as the deep state grooms Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
“I have told Kenyans to take it to the bank. Raila Amolo Odinga will play the role former President Mwai Kibaki played,
“Being in state House for five or so years as they process the heir to the throne… none other than Gideon Moi,” he said.
Gideon Moi is currently the Baringo Senator and while he enjoys a cordial relationship with Uhuru Kenyatta, observers hold he lacks the political clout to become president.
Herman Manyora’s views tend to suggest Moi needs at least 5 more years to be ready to occupy the house on the hil.
Manyora who recently cautioned William Ruto to be very afraid of President Uhuru’s silence further warned him about the ‘Limuru 3’ which a section of leaders from Mt Kenya said will happen in the next three months.
Last week, Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua, The Service Paty leader Mwangi Kiunjuri, and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria announced plans to have an inter-party caucus comprising of leaders from the vote-rich Mt Kenya region.
Already president Uhuru Kenyatta is pushing for opposition unity which will see the One Kenya Alliance principals back Raila Odinga for his fifth stab at the presidency.
Raila Odinga’s party is in talks with Jubilee to ink a pre-election agreement which may also see the KANU party support, Raila Odinga.
Last week, the Head of State met former Prime Minister Raila Odinga alongside OKA where sources revealed that the President was pushing for the opposition unity that would see Raila being the flag bearer.
