Uhuru has since made it clear that he will be seeking to influence the outcome of the polls, and will want to have a say on who rules as the next president.
However, he says that just the same way Uhuru lost to Mwai Kibaki, Moi's former deputy, Gideon will most likely lose to William Ruto, Uhuru's deputy.
"In 2002 President Moi did all within his power to force Uhuru Kenyatta, a former President's son to succeed him but lost to Kibaki, his former V/President. H.E Uhuru has put his all to get Gideon Moi, a former President's son to beat Ruto, his Deputy President. God is watching," he says in a tweet posted Tuesday.
If correct, Khalwale's prediction means that Uhuru will be leaving out other big names seen as likely to secure his support, including that of ODM leader Raila Odinga.
The other one is ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, who together with Moi, Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya have joined hands to form the One Kenya Alliance.
Uhuru has already indirectly indicated that he will not be keeping his initial promise to endorse Ruto, saying that he doesn't owe anybody anything.
He has, however, been keen not to mention his preferred successor, saying that it is not time for political declarations and campaigns yet.
His anti-Ruto remarks have angered Ruto allies, who are now accusing him of betrayal, with some saying that the DP is not relying on his support.
