Raila-Munya ticket for 2022
Mt Kenya power barons popularly known as Mt Kenya mafia have settled on an Odinga-Munya ticket for 2022. In a meeting attended by who is who in the country’s power circle, it was also decided DP William Ruto should not be allowed anywhere near the presidency, at least not in 2022.
According to reports, the meeting which took place in Gatanga last week was attended by Joe Kibe, Peter Kenneth, CS Peter Munya, CS James Macharia, Business magnate Peter Munga, Kikuyu Council of Elders Chair, Speaker JB Muturi, Maoke Maore, Nderitu Muriithi and Governor Kiraitu Murungi.
”Raila is safer. But we demand Mt Kenya to get DP position and Powerful PM,Speaker of the National Assembly and half the Cabinet. Raila must accept less powerful President if he need our backing,” a highly credible source confided to this writer. Among the names flouted for the PM position is President Kenyatta.
”Establish a kitty to mobilize funds to roll out oiled Mt Kenya political campaign. Target 3 billion shillings for Mt Kenya alone.President Uhuru be the PM while Munya be Raila’s running mate,” the source adds.
Even though the meeting took place in Gatanga, Jubilee Vice Chair, a prominent figure in Uhuru’s succession politics was not in attendance. An idea of opening criminal charges against DP Ruto after 2022 was also flouted, to slow him down, even further.
Mt Kenya Tanga Tanga MPs are not spared either. The meeting resolved to front and fund strong candidates in areas with Ruto allied MPs and leaders who have openly disrespected the Presidency, as an office. Targeted seats are those for Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro, Rigathi Gachagua and Alice Wahome.
