It is on a Thursday and the race to the house on top of the hill has taken another twist. This is after President Uhuru Kenyatta for the first time, spoke his heart out while in a meeting in Sagana.
While Officially endorsing Raila Odinga as his most preferred candidate, President Uhuru said he has nothing personal against his deputy and that if he changes his ways, then they might consider him after Raila’s term.
While proving his support for the ODM boss, Uhuru told Kenyans DP Ruto was linked to graft and stole project funds meant for the people of Mt Kenya and the whole country.
He went on to ask his Mt Kenya backyard to strongly support Raila, saying the country would be safer in his hands. However, his remarks in Gikuyu language elicited sharp reactions among Ruto allied leaders from the region, whoc came out to term his comments as non-influential and will not change anything.
Do you think Uhuru’s endorsement of Raila will work in favour of the ODM boss in Mt Kenya region?
