He criticized people selling his agenda claiming they don't mean well for him since they are not in touch with the ground. Nyakera though acknowledged that Raila Odinga in Mt Kenya region right now is electable.

"My conclusion is that Baba has now been demystified and looks electable even in Mt Kenya.I also think Baba is not a bad man. But the people selling him don’t mean well for him. They are not in touch with Wanjiku. He should fire them and find new advisers," Nyakera said.
