Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe has told Kenyans to prepare for Raila Odinga presidency come 2022.
In an interview with KTN yesternight ,the ally of president Uhuru said that the ODM chief must now be rewarded for all the struggles and sacrifices he’s made to ensure this country progresses democratically.
Raila would have his one term then pave way for generation change in Kenya’s political order.
“We think it’s time Kenyans rewarded the years of struggle of Raila Amollo Odinga. They owe it to him. It’s like Mandela, and 2022 will be a Mandela Moment. And we would also like to tell him (Raila) to be a transitional president who will then nurture the young generation to take over in 2027,” he said.
Accordin’g to him,the fact that Raila will contest is unquestionable.
“What I can confirm is that in 2022, we will have a poster. And in that poster there will be a portrait of the Handshake. Assuming we go by the formation unveiled at Bomas, we will probably have a prime minister coming from Mount Kenya. You may have a deputy prime minister coming from Coast and the other possibly from the Rift Valley,” he said.
Murathe asked the Wiper party leader to pave way for Raila to have his one term.
“Untill he (Kalonzo) moves from the Nasa coalition, what we are doing is co-operating. Just like we are co-operating with ODM. I don’t know what the arrangement is on the Nasa side but if you ask me I would like him (Kalonzo) to also let Raila run,” he said.
David Murathe has been very instrumental in shaping President Kenyatta’s political agenda.
Other key leaders in the same ,include cabinet secretaries;
- Ukur Yatani (Treasury),
- James Macharia (Transport)
- Peter Munya (Agriculture)
- Fred Matiang’i (Interior)
- Mutahi Kagwe (Health).
