Anyone imagining H. E. Raila Odinga should retire from politics as a President who never was like the late Tom Mboya and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga does not mean well for Kenya.
The grace and magnanimity this nationalist has shown and the sacrifices he has made for the sake of this nation makes Kenya justly indebted to him to secure that he leads from the front with those leaders of like mind to deliver the nation to where he so heartily envisions. Raila Odinga is the leaving Nelson Mandela of Africa: as Kenyans we are lucky to have him as a fellow citizen.
And anyone thinking President Uhuru Kenyatta should retire from politics in 2022 is dead wrong. By his demonstrated will to fight corruption and impunity and to unite the nation in his second term, President Kenyatta is buying for himself acres of space in the hearts of Kenyans. I’ve heard individuals who were sworn foes of the President only yesterday openly support his current leadership. 1
.The next leadership of Kenya will be an inclusive government negotiated in the Boardroom and taken to the people to validate.
2. The Constitution of Kenya will be amended in 2021 to accommodate national cohesion and unity by establishing a Parliamentary system of government like in the Grand Coalition Government.
The leadership of Kenya from 2022 will have a President and a Prime Minister, each with 2 deputies. My heart tells me that the government will be constituted as follows: President (Prime Minister Raila Odinga), Prime Minister (President Uhuru Kenyatta), Kalonzo Musyoka, Gedion Moi, Musalia Mudavadi and Ali Hassan Jojo (to serve as Deputies President/Prime Minister).
I also see Amason Kingi, Wicliffe Oparanya, Eugene Wamalwa, Peter Munya, Josphat Nanok, James Ongwae serving as key Ministers in the government. The Opposition will be led by William Ruto.
