Before exiting, Kenyatta II has affirmed that he will be play part in leveraging the ground for his successor. Various hopefuls will verily be looking forward to win his heart and whoever succeeds, will have a catalyst.

Since there is nothing new under the sun, Uhuru may endorse his father's son in the run of 2022 race. Let it be remembered that its Daniel Arap Moi who hauled Muigai from blues thrusting him on power.

Prior to 2022 elections, Nyayo did the unimaginable; he handpicked Jomo's son as his preferred successor a decision that caused a political mayhem with KANU party. Moi become occupied statehouse after Kenyatta's death and his move was sure an appreciation gesture to the latter's family.

KANU chair as also hinted that he is working hard to fly One Kenya Alliance fly in 2022 and though many may perceive him as a non starter, one by one makes two.
