Opposition chief Raila Odinga has again unleashed a new political strategy and rebranding that keeps friend and foe guessing. For the first time, Raila rebuffed claims by his closest allies that his eyes were trained on the presidency and that he had started strategising for 2022. The former Prime Minister has instead intensified his push for constitutional amendments, urging a parliamentary system of governance as well as a three-tier devolved structure.
Yesterday, Raila released a statement in which he disowned his close confederates — including Siaya Senator Orengo who said Raila was in the race — and asked Kenyans to refuse to be distracted by the politics of 2022. Raila's political game plan is the exact opposite of Deputy President William Ruto's approach — he is already on a charm offensive for State House.
“Raila further appeals to Kenyans to stay focused on critical issues in the 'Building Bridges' project and healing the nation. He reiterates the need for Kenyans to address themselves to the future we would want our children to live in and refuse to be distracted by the politics of 2022,” Raila said through his spokesman Dennis Onyango.
