It is the second week of January and 2022 politics in the country is fast taking shape.
While Deputy President William Ruto was holed up in Nairobi for the better part of Wednesday drumming up support for his Hustler Nation, his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta made an impromptu visit to Raila Odinga’s backyard Kisumu, to inspect the newly renovated Kisumu port.
And immediately after his departure from the lakeside city, reports emerged that Uhuru had booked a lunch date with all handshake MPs in Nairobi on Thursday.
According to reports, no Tanga Tanga allied MP will be entertained in the meeting and only those allied to Azimio have been invited.
It is suspected the meeting will be used to review the MP’s performance in Parliament, at the same time, whispers of Raila endorsement have been reported during the lunch meeting with Azimio legislators.
Do you think it’s now high time for Uhuru to openly come out and endorse Raila Odinga for the big seat in 2022?
