Exiled Kenyan-Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna has told opposition leader Raila Odinga to forget his ambition of becoming the next president of Kenya even if the BBI bill will sail through.
The fiery lawyer said that the Orange Democratic Movement leader should not celebrate the recent passing of the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill 2020 by the National Assembly since it has little or nothing to do with who succeeds President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Miguna accused his former boss of reviewing the Constitution of Kenya every time the country nears electioneering period thinking that it will favor him.
“To those celebrating the BBI passage in Bunge, remember that Raila Odinga defeated Mwai Kibaki in the 2005 referendum but failed to become the president. He again defeated William Ruto in the 2010 constitution but again failed to become the president,” Miguna said.
This comes barely days after President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake counterpart Raila Odinga requested their members both in the National Assembly and Senate to pass the document without amending even a comma.
The duo said that its only through the proposed amendments that the country will achieve long-term solutions to the problems the state has been experiencing over the past decades.
“We are making a joint appeal to members of the National Assembly and the senate to join the 3, 188,001 Kenyans who supported the Bill, and the 44 County Assemblies who approved it,” the two leaders said in a joint statement.
Raila Odinga is expected to battle with Deputy President William Ruto among others in the forthcoming General Election.
Ruto in a Tv interview ealier told the country the only strong candidate he will face is none other than Raila Odinga.
