Nairobi lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has said former Prime Minister Raila Odinga will be squashed by Deputy President William Ruto on the off chance that he doesn’t pick former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate in August.
In a tweet on Thursday, Ahmednasir said Raila Odinga has no other choice except to pick Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate to match the strength of DP RUTO, the Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential flagbearer.
“Hon Raila has NO OPTION but to have Kalonzo Musyoka SC as his running mate…of course, they have mutual antipathy…but where will Hon Raila go without Musyoka? If he doesn’t pick him… he will be crushed,” Ahmednasir said.
Ahmednasir talked a day after Kalonzo said he will not participate in the Azimio-One Kenya alliance’s running mate vetting process.
“I want to tell all Kenyans that I will not attend the said process. I find the entire thing demeaning to my person and will therefore distance myself from it,” Kalonzo said.
