Raila's Limited Options As The Opposition Leader

Raila Odinga has vied for the fifth time without success. Yesterday his former ally turned political rival William Ruto was announced the winner. Ruto is expected to assume office from early next month. This leaves Raila Odinga with very few options on his next phase of political life.

The first option Incase the supreme court way fails is engineering a handshake. Ruto is a man who is known to be firm. There is unlikelihood that Ruto as president will not accept such a move. The only way he will run the national assembly maybe through buying out mps to his side.

The other option for Raila is to retire gracefully from active politics. Age is getting him slower each day, he may not have much energy to counter check the government anymore.

The last option which looks more of an impossibility is vying again in 2027. At the time he will be 82 years.
