Good morning Kenyans.
We are at the end of a week that has been a rollercoaster ride in the political world.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi recently showed that there is no love lost between Kieleweke and Tanga Tanga factions.
A brave Sudi took a jibe at President Uhuru Kenyatta over the 2022 succession saga.
The vocal politician noted that he was ready to help Deputy President William Ruto face-off, with anyone who Uhuru would pick to take over from him instead of the DP.
The lawmaker pointed out that he had struck a deal with Ruto in the event Interior CS Fred Matiang’i or Baringo Senator Gideon Moi was chosen to take over the mantle from the president.
According to the legislator, he would ask the second in command to shelve his ambitions for 2022 and instead endorse him for Presidency in order to deal with the two leaders.
This brings up two big questions, is there a possibility that DP Ruto would easily give up his chance to become president and endorse the MP, and would Sudi stand a chance to beat the likes of the Interior CS or the KANU party Chair to the top seat?
These are the news making headlines on Opera News App:

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru’s woes were compounded after a surprise visit by detectives from the EACC.
The anti-corruption authorities raided her Nairobi and Kirinyaga homes and office in a bid to gather evidence against Waiguru.
EACC announced that they had acquired a warrant to search the County boss’s premises amid corruption allegations.
The politician’s day was further thrown into turmoil when she was driven to Nairobi by the detectives after the raid.
According to Governor Waiguru, the abrupt search on her homes and offices was politically motivated.
This leaves one wondering, will the embattled governor follow the same path that befell former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu?
