"He Is A Political Genius" Expert Claims Uhuru Played Multi-bets in The Polls, Advises Him Over Ruto

Political commentator Joe Khalende says outgoing Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta "played his cards extremely effectively" in this year's election.

Khaled claims that Uhuru's appointment as chair of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance was well thought out, as the team could have introduced the BBI had Raila Odinga, the Azimio's presidential candidate, won.

On Tuesday morning's episode of K24 TV, a political observer alleged that the president had multiple bets, including serving as chair of the Azimio and forming multiple political parties under the Azimio name.

He named Eugene Wamamwa's party in particular, as well as the Democratic Action Party of Kenya, DAP-K, and others, claiming that their establishment was initiated by the president and that he will still have certain authority until the parties join hands with his Jubilee party.

Since the Mount Kenya region has been transformed 'yellow,' the prominent color of Ruto's United Democratic Alliance, UDA party, the Analyst urged the president to concede that his deputy William Ruto has outsmarted him and resign gracefully.

"Uhuru, in my opinion, has acted quite strategically. You can tell he put multiple bets by studying the layout in Azimio. Assuming the role of Azimio chair was a brilliant move. As the Azimio coalition's primary negotiator, he was aware that several Jubilee Party candidates would have prevailed in the election. His DAP-K party is driven by him."

"The vote in Mt. Kenya was a protest vote against Uhuru, and he should accept it, just as his party's secretary general, Jeremiah Kioni, did. He should be aware that Ruto has been a great leader for the people of Mt. Kenya, and those tribal politics have no place there."
