Something Could be Happening Between Mudavadi, UDA as an Interesting Observation is Made

ODM leader Raila Odinga is no longer a match to Deputy President William Ruto with regards to next year's presidential contest, controversial city lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi now says.

This is even as pundits hold that the former Premier is the other 2022 frontrunner alongside Ruto and could even beat the DP if he fails to have the Mt Kenya region vote for him as a bloc.

But for the lawyer, who now spreads the DP's gospel, Raila is no longer a horse in the race but either a donkey or a mule, suggesting that the other one in this category is Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

He opines that the race is now between Ruto and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, observing that the light has been dimmed on the other two.

"The Presidential race for 2022 hasn't even started proper..but for two candidates the light has been dimmed (one has been relegated to the DONKEYS race, the other to the MULE race)...Mudavadi is NOW the candidate with a fighting chance against DP Ruto!" he says in a tweet.

But his remarks have been dismissed by fellow lawyer Donald Kipkorir, who observes that this could be a plan to flatter Mudavadi for some hidden reason.

For him, Mudavadi doesn't stand a chance of succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta and Abdullahi's remarks could be part of a bigger plan by Ruto's UDA party to get something from the ex-Vice President.

"You are really flattering MM to believe he is a horse! I don’t know your uda game plan but I know MM isn’t in the line up," the lawyer, a supporter of Raila, who has even predicted his 2022 presidency, says.
