The Deputy President William Ruto's camp has already analyzed the arena and identified the person who can make things hard for the DP in the 2022 presidential contest, Garissa Town MP Aden Duale says.

Duale says that this person is ODM leader Raila Odinga, who though being seen as another man preparing himself to participate in the race, remains silent on ether or not he will be taking part. 

But the former National Assembly Majority Leader, in admiting that the former Prime Minister is still strong, says that he is the only one they are worried about, dismissing the others as weak endorsement seekers.

"For us in Ruto's camp, our only serious competitor is Raila. Going forward, the political future of the Kanu orphans of yesteryear is bleak without the endorsement of Uhuru, Raila or Ruto," he told The Star.

He has at the same time doubted if President Uhuru Kenyatta can endorse any of the three NASA co-principals; Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi, judging by how much of a burden they were to Raila during their days together.

He argues that unless the three, who have now teamed up with KANU leader Gideon Moi to form a 2022 alliance, secure the endorsement of Raila or Uhuru, then they are headed nowhere, as they cannot stand on their own.

"The former Nasa principals have been a liability to the former PM (Raila) in terms of resources, strategy and numbers. Without the endorsement of Raila or Uhuru, their political investment is under receivership," Duale is quoted.

Raila has already made it clear that he will not support any of the three, taking issue with their absence during his mock presidential coronation in Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.

Allies of Uhuru have also been terming Raila the man he will endorse as his preferred successor, leaving the fate of the three former NASA supremos hanging.
