Atwoli's Anti-Ruto Prophecy Expected to Hit a Dead End as Ngunjiri Unleashes a Counter-Strategy

In the next ten or so months, Kenyans will have their fifth president, whoever that will be, time will tell. Of those hyped to have their names written below Uhuru Kenyatta's is William Ruto and Raila Odinga.

The duo are notable leaders with vast political experience, endearing nature and extensive networks, these makes them the probables. One of the country's vocal and controversial political seer Francis Atwoli has between the two casted his lots on Raila as Uhuru's successor.

Various theorists and political pundits have echoed Atwoli's prophecy citing that the veteran stands a chance of occupying the house on the hill top that is if he plays his cards well.

Of the political strategies expected to give him a breakthrough is that of joining arms with his 2017 co-principals; Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka. Raila's growing camaraderie with Jomo's son is also expected to give him a lifeline.

Unfortunately, Atwoli's prophecy is projected to hit a dead end should Nyeri Township MP and his entourage take the projected move. In unexpected discourse, Wambugu Ngunjiri has declared his support for Ruto's presidency a declaration that puts Raila's political life in jeopardy.

Wambugu is a close ally and associate of Uhuru Kenyatta and his declaration could be a warning to Agwambo and company to forget the region's support. Without Mt Kenya's support, chances of Francis' pro-Raila prophecy actualizing lies a fraction above the zero.

Ngunjiri disclosed that Ruto's sudden change of heart has earned him his support and the more William's candidacy is accepted in Mt Kenya, the more the chances of him being the country's next head of state.
