ODM leader Raila Odinga is a victim of political lies from people close to him, regarding his new plan to fight the government, analyst Barrack Muluka says.
Raila has announced plans to hold anti-government protests and rallies, which he says are aimed at putting President William Ruto's leadership in check.
But Muluka, a former ANC Secretary General, says that the leader has lost the following be once had, but is being misled by the politicians closest to him.
He argues that while Raila too knows that his time is over, this group is successfully pushing him on, hoping to continue using his name to benefit.
“Even a star player knows when to quit. It is really a sad state of affairs,” the once close ally of Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi told the Sunday Standard.
Political analyst Macharia Munene said that the rallies have very little to do with Ruto and are about Raila rebranding himself in readiness for future polls.
But those close to the former Prime Minister have held that he knows what he is doing, and will ultimately succeed in his bid to liberate Kenyans.
"Raila is our leader and we will act on his clarion call. We cannot allow the new administration to drag us back to the dark days,” Rangwe MP Lilian Gogo said.
