Uhuru's Trusted Elite Friends To Meet Raila And OKA Without Ruto As He Tries To Manage Succession

President Uhuru Kenyatta is keen on ensuring that he manages his Succession such that when he leaves office, he retires a comfortable man after handing over power to a man of his choice.

His efforts to convince one Kenya Alliance principals Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka to unite behind Raila Odinga seemed heading into headwinds.

However, it seems that Uhuru is yet to throw In the towel given the latest reports of a plan by a group of businessmen who met Raila on Tuesday.

The elite business group lead by Peter Munga who is the chairman, Nyandarua governor Francis Kimemia and muboho kenyatta met Raila at safari park hotel.

During the meeting, they said that they have been Mandated by the president to search for a Successor who will continue with the jubilee agenda.

Having met Raila, the team will on Friday meet with one Kenya Alliance principals at the same venue to share their ideas with them.

The vice Chairman of the Mount Kenya foundation (MKF) Titus ibui said that after sitting with the said leaders, they will take the president a name which they would have decided on.

"The President asked us to advise him on what type of person he should hand the mantle to," Ibui said as quoted by Star.

"We will listen to all candidates; today we have started with Raila, on Friday we will come back here to hear from the OKA team.

"Once we have gone through the interaction, we will sit down to choose who we relate with and then take the name to the President." Ibui added.

Ibui did not however indicate whether the team will be meeting DP Ruto who is also seeking to succeed Uhuru.

This is another vlray indication that Uhuru may not retire and go home just like his predecessor Mwai Kibaki.
