There are cracks inside President Uhuru’s think tank, with two opposite factions supporting Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi for the top seat, going for each other’s throats.
According to a source from KANU, Mudavadi’s men are uncomfortable with the massive support Baringo Senator enjoys from the Kenyatta family. This has planted a seed of suspicion, with Mudavadi’s backers claiming they are being used to make the KANU leader president in 2022.
Even though Wiper Leader Kalonzo has been positioning himself as a possible 2022 candidate, he has been struck out of the list of possible presidential contenders. He is described as weak with ”political influence not going beyond Machakos.”
Already, there is commotion inside the One Kenya Alliance and indivdual parties are fighting hard to gain attention of President Uhuru Kenyatta, for his endorsement in 2022. The alliance comprises of the ANC Party, Wiper Democratic Movement, Ford-Kenya and KANU.
Meanwhile, ODM leader Raila Odinga enjoys massive support from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s allies. Among them Jubilee Vice Chair David Murathe, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, Muhoho Kenyatta and COTU Boss Francis Atwoli.
State House strategist Nancy Gitau and PS of Interior, Karanja Kibicho are said to be rooting for ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi as possible Uhuru successor in 2022.
