Economist David Ndii has questioned whether President Uhuru Kenyatta was seeking a third term in office. Ndii was responding to today's newspaper headlines which have targeted President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto as rivals in Kiambaa by - election.
The Standard newspaper wrote its headline as a showdown that will see Ruto and Uhuru face each other in Uhuru's home county Kiambu. While the Star saw the by - elections as a battle royale as Uhuru 'locks horns' with his DP in Kiambaa.
The Taifa leo swahili newspaper asked 'Nani Atapaa Kiambaa' meaning Who will win in Kiambaa between President Uhuru and Ruto.
Many political analysts expect the outcome of Kiambaa by elections to reveal who will control Mount Kenya politics in next year's general elections between Uhuru and Ruto. A win for the UDA candidate will help DP Ruto cement his growing popularity in the Mountain while a win for Jubilee candidate will show that Kikuyus are still controlled by their kingpin Uhuru.
