President Uhuru Kenyatta is in a crossroad recently regarding which party to support between his Deputy president William Ruto and his handshake partner Raila Odinga over BBI. Intelligence reports to him of the unpopularity of BBI among Kenyans which is the 'baby' borne through handshake which seems it will be hard for it to survive. The following are the reasons why the president might not be in Hurry to push for the removal of the DP through impeachment or resignation ;
1.His plan to impeach Ruto and appoint Gideon Moi or Raila Odinga as the Deputy president failed due to intelligence advice that DP Ruto should be in government so that he can be controlled easily.
2. Raila Odinga feared that if Ruto gets out of government through impeachment or resignation, ODM party will be no longer be the official opposition party as this position will be taken over by DP Ruto officially. This will make Raila Odinga the loser in case he get shortchanged in the Handshake.
3. The president has also been briefed by the Kenyan intelligence agency that Luhyas are ready to support William Ruto because of his strong allies in the Western region in addition to a possible coalition with Western political representatives, Musalia Mudavadi and Amos Wetangula.
4. The Removing of Aden Duale as Majority leader in Parliament will have effects on the marginalized communities and this may lead the marginalized sections of the country to oppose the BBI.
5.The has been knows that the Ruto led "hustler nation" is a strong movement that is capable of taking over in 2022. Many see the continued purge of JUBILEE leaders aligned to the Deputy president as an advantage to the "Hustler movement" which is gaining popularity and more members each and every day.
