Already, some allies of the president, operating under the tag 'Kieleweke', have termed Raila the best man to succeed Uhuru, with some like Nominated MP Maina Kamanda predicting that Uhuru will support his bid.
Former Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang'ata, who recently left the group to join that of Deputy President William Ruto, says that the plan indeed exists, claiming that during his days as the whip, he knew about it.
“I had the intelligence since I was at the centre of power due to my position as the Senate Chief Whip," the Murang'a senator said when he hosted Ruto in his county on Sunday, as is quoted by The Standard.
He claimed that the plan has not changed, suggesting that the government is very keen on making Raila the next president that it is doing all it can to succeed.
But he at the same time predicted doom for the plot, saying that some parts of the nation, especially Mt Kenya, is not comfortable with the leader, and will reject him again in 2022.
For him, it is Ruto who will sweep across the nation even if Raila comes with the backing of Uhuru, the Mt Kenya political kingpin.
“The government’s candidate in the 2022 presidential race is Raila Odinga, but I can promise them that Raila is not sellable in Mt Kenya region.The region supports Ruto’s bid,” he added, weeks after being ejected for allegedly leaking a letter warning Uhuru that his BBI push, would be rejected in Mt Kenya.
