While Odinga is following what his doctors advised him, Kimani an ardent supporter of the handhake now believes that a time for other players in Uhuru's camp and the sacred alliance should now arise and prove to Kenyans that the BBI Doesn't belong to Raila Odinga.
“The country is calm, no one is talking about BBI but if he was well, he could still occupy national discourse with his activities. If he takes too long a break, BBI is likely to suffer a lot,” wambugu said.
"BBI politics isn't an ODM Party Project. Raila's absence shouldn't be a obstacle towards the Constitutional amendment process is concerned. We must pull up our socks or else our enemies will overtake us," He added.Kimani Wambugu's sentiments gained a boost from Gideon Keter who has reiterated that Raila Odinga has been attracting a huge and populous crowd during his rallies.
