Herman Manyora had cautioned One Kenya Alliance leaders that they will not go far if they chant their own political routes without uniting with the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Manyora who has held the view that the 2022 presidential contest is between Raila and Deputy President William Ruto argued that there is still time for the OKA team, Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Gideon Moi and Moses Wetangula to link up with Raila who might assign them different positions from 2022.
"The OKA leaders are moving way from Raila to being irrelevant. They ought to unite since once they go on their own, they will divide the votes, which will result in to a run off. But I think they are playing games," said Manyora.
The Lecturer at the University of Nairobi went on to state that the 2022 race is almost determined, arguing that the recent political milestone made by the ODM leader is a great achievement ahead of the elections.
He added that Raila will have a swift race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta since by May next year, he will be enjoying more than 50 per cent of support from voters across the country.
The Political Analyst urged Raila to maintain his engagement with the elite, interact with the elite and refrain from hitting on Ruto to win the post in the morning.
