President Uhuru Kenyatta is on his own after cousin Kung’u Muigai dumped him for supporting ODM Leader Raila Odinga for president.
As per Muigai, the move by Uhuru to endorse long-time political enemy for the top seat is against the 1969 oath.
He noted that those who took the oath in 1969 pledged to prevent Raila Odinga’s dad, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, and his relatives from taking over the leadership of Kenya.
He noted that the people who made the 1969 oath ought to be purified prior to supporting Odinga, in any case, the vote-rich Mt Kenyan region will be cursed.
He said Uhuru’s choice to support his handshake accomplice didn’t belong to the Mount Kenya people but his personally.
This comes scarcely a week after the first in command officially endorsed the former prime minister for the presidency in the forthcoming General Election.
While tending to delegates of the Mt Kenya region, Uhuru asked his community to back Raila’s bid, saying he has the best interests for the country.
He expressed that the ODM pioneer comprehends where the nation is going, and will, therefore, be at peace to hand to him the leadership mantle.
In an obvious reference to Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru said he will have no issue supporting him in future assuming that he changes.
“I’m asking you to support Raila Odinga as he means well for the Country. When ‘my young man reforms’, we will consider him,” the president said.
