Raila's Close Ally Underfire As He Makes Prediction On Who Will Be Kenya's Next President Online

Homabay constituency member of parliament and a close ally of the former Prime minister and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga , Hon. Peter Kaluma has landed in trouble with a section of Netizens after making a prediction on the 2022 succession online.

Penning his thoughts in a post on his Twitter page on Sunday, Kaluma claimed that The next President of Kenya will be a Nilote. A post which a section of Netizens have condemned strongly terming it as a statement that promotes tribalism among Kenyans.

Below are Reactions from Netizens on his post.

"You've moved from tribalism to ethnic group political segregation, when will we learn that tribalism, ethnic bulkanization or ethnic groupings will not give us good leaders but competence, manifesto & patriotism will?" A comment read.

"Anybody who elected you to be a public representative made a big mistake,sir, it is the voters who make the final decision. You don't decide for the citizens of Kenyans. How many votes do you have?allow Kenyans to practice their democratic rights." A comment read.

"It doesn't matter. Bora ni mkenya Mkenya ni mkenya and anyone or any tribe is entitled to vie for Presidency. Tribe does not matter." A comment read.

"Even Gideon moi is a nillotic speaker but as Hustler nation we don't trust dynasty class with power ." A comment read.

"In contrast, the Nuer, Dinka, and Luo of Kenya are without rulers, their egalitarian society being based on a relationship between lineage segments coordinated with territorial segments." A comment read.

"Hahahaha Kaluma how things change so fast. We are the enemies of our own. Let's unite Raila and Ruto for the benefit of this country. Our enemy has always been one. Let's not buy their games and tricks anymore." A comment read.

"That is shallow, but not surprising. A Public Official who is more fixated with Ethnicity and Tribal Groupings than respect for the Rule of Law, Equity & Justice, Supremacy of the Constitution, free & independent Institutions, and Youth [email protected] @StateHouseKenya." A comment read.
