"You Cannot Answer For Uhuru" Expert Tells Raila Over His Latest Remarks on The Ex-President

The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance boss Raila Odinga is on the receiving end from a section of leaders from Jubilee Party as well as political analysts after saying that the Former President Uhuru Kenyatta was not resigning as the Azimio chairman.

Speaking in Mombasa on Sunday, Raila said that the Azimio Camp was intact, adding that he has been in communication with Uhuru on the coalition issues, remarks that have been criticized by different political players.

In an interview with NTV on Monday, Political Analyst Gitile Naituli said that Uhuru has retired from active politics, and that the Former Prime Minister should leave him alone.

Naituli also echoed remarks by the Jubilee Party nominated MP Sabina Chege who said that the former Head of State can speak for himself on whether he will be resigning from Azimio or not.

"Raila need to know that he cannot answer for Uhuru or even Joho. They can speak to us even when outside this country. Raila should go back to being the Raila people knew."

"In fact he lost the August elections since it was not his election, it was between Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto. People will only appreciate Raila if he goes back to being the freedom fighter we knew."

Naituli argued that it will be almost impossible for Raila to convince Uhuru to take part in active politics.

"If Uhuru wants to continue being in Azimio, then Raila should allow him to say so. But I do not believe that he is going to remain in Kenyan politics."

Naituli's remarks were supported by Governance Consultant Charles Munyui who said that Raila should move on and repackage himself ahead of the 2027 polls since Uhuru was not going to make a comeback in active politics.
