It is no doubt that Kenyan politicians live ahead of time, though 2022 General Elections are a year away, they have started readying their forces for the occasion. Since there is nothing new under the sun, familiar patterns have started folding before our very eyes.
Of the six elective seats, presidential race is expected to attract stiff competition as various bigwigs will lock horns to unseat Jomo Kenyatta's son. Before tables turned, Uhuru's deputy was to be his natural successor.
UhuRuto fallout was not coincidental but later predictable or so Isaac Ruto made us believe. While attending an interview with Tony Gachoka of KTN's Point Blank, the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) leader warned William to be cautious when dealing with Mt Kenya for the region thrives in politics of betrayal and deception.
Citing history, Isaac 'predicted' that the region will play all manners of political games when the time to return hand beckons. True to his words, part of the region's leadership are currently anti-Ruto presidency though they earlier vowed to support him come what may, prophecy come true.
The region is said to be warming for Raila presidency but since tabia ni ngozi, Agwambo's fate is unknown and he is likely set to face the very guillotine Samoei encountered a while ago.
Speaking on Saturday, Kirinyaga county governor Anne Waiguru disclosed that region is rallying its forces and when the time comes, they will listen to each presidential candidate and whoever the impressive bidder will be, they will back him up.
Her sentiments contradicts her previous hard stance that the region was solidly behind Jakom. Since it can happen to anybody, Raila's goose is undoubtedly cooking and when its ready, it might be served hot. Will that really happen? Politics is the game of possibilities.
