Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party presidential candidate Raila Odinga lost the presidency to chief hustler William Ruto.
As such, Raila’s allies have been pointing accusing fingers at each other on why the opposition leader lost his fifth stab at the country’s top seat.
However, in a statement on Wednesday, December 14, political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi warned allies of the former Prime Minister against faulting themselves for Raila’s defeat.
He said Uhuru first wanted to make peace with Raila Odinga and the so-called ‘System’ and ‘Deep State’ so that he can keep the “Kumi yangu, Kumi ya Ruto” promise he made with his deputy.
“Uhuru (Kenyatta) wanted to hand over to William Ruto. That is #whyRailalost. He (Uhuru Kenyatta) made peace with the Odinga dynasty and kept the kumi-kumi promise,” Mutahi Ngunyi said in a Tweet.
The analyst opined that those appearing on Television interviews on why Raila lost are nothing but political ignoramuses.
“He won on two fronts. Those talking heads on NTV were at the periphery of strategy. They are nothing but political ignoramus,” he added.
Earlier on, Ngunyi sensationally alleged that Rtd. President Uhuru Kenyatta could have, all along, planned to finish Raila Odinga politically.
Ngunyi argued that the immediate former Head of State did not do enough to help his handshake partner win the August 9, presidential election.
“Maybe Raila was a decoy and Uhuru’s plan all along was to hand over to Ruto. I say so because Uhuru acted sub-optimally in this election. He handed over his constituency to Ruto without a fight. Then he disabled the deep state. Was this the Kumi-Kumi” plan?” Ngunyi said.
