Opinion: Reasons Uhuru Finds it Difficult to Endorse Musalia Mudavadi

H.E Uhuru Kenyatta is in his final years in the office after serving two consecutive terms as the President of the republic of Kenya. The head of state has been seen very acute on who he will appoint as the next of king after him to take his big four agenda legacy on course. From the recent political meetings and gathering that were terminated and banned after the president addressed the nation and gave directives and guidelines measures to compact the spread of this so called third wave corona virus,Uhuru has been very vocal on who to support and who not to add power to. Despite this statement, Kenyans have power to decide who they want as their next president unless he apply his own ways to impose his preferred to that top seat.

It is assumed that the 2022 presidential flag bearers chat includes, Dp Ruto,Raila Odinga,Musalia Mudavadi,Gideon Moi,and Kalonzo Musyoka though the list may grow as the time elapses. In a month ago the president clearly said that he will not endorse his Dp William Ruto for presidency in the coming general election for what he termed as " not adding power to a thief". From the president visit to the Mulembe nation and western as a whole,their is a lot of talks that the president may endorse Raila or any candidate from one Kenya Alliance who the probability lies on Musalia Mudavadi.

Nevertheless,there factors giving the president headache in this plan of endorsing Musalia. One of my take on this is;

Musalia Mudavadi is not popular and he is taking no single action to sell his agenda through national wide campaigns to many Kenyans as Deputy president William Ruto does. I don't remember any time soon Musalia Mudavadi was spotted in Mt.Kenya region plus many parts of the country. For one to earn this to seat you must be politically aggressive not being docile waiting for the manna from heaven. President finds it hard to endorse this Mulembe Man.

My second opinion lies on the fact that Musalia Mudavadi with his ANC party are being involved in unneeded political wars one being the recent one at Matungu by-election. ANC candidate emerged the champion of the election but when ODM complained about the results,ANC party leader replied to them abusively through the letter.

Therefore assuming that president Uhuru and Raila are into pact to retire and support anybody from NASA coalition,definitely Musalia Mudavadi will be ignored by ODM party leader Raila who will go for Kalonzo.President may also be perceiving this as hinderance of his plan to endorse Mudavadi to this top seat position.
