ODM leader Raila Odinga's allies have issued a condition that he must be the one to ride on President Uhuru Kenyatta's endorsement in the much awaited 2022 presidential contest.

Already, there are anticipations within the former Prime Minister's camp that he is Uhuru's favorite, thanks to their closeness and promises from close allies of the President.

There, however, have emerged details that a section of members of Uhuru's inner circle want ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi as his successor and have already began holding secret meetings to discuss the possibilities of the same happening.

Such a meeting, according to The Star, happened at the Panafric Hotel on Monday evening, with others, bringing together powerful sources around the president, being held at Mudavadi's office.

The paper, however, reports that Raila's allies have warned against this plan, threatening that their supporters will revolt should it be implemented.

"Who said Raila's bases would easily embrace another candidate? And what would be the basis of telling a more popular candidate to back the others? Raila will only serve for five years. He should be given a chance," a close Raila ally told the paper on Thursday.

Mudavadi has lately been seen working closely with his colleagues Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), Kalonzo Musyoka (ANC) and Gideon Moi, with his allies suggesting that they will soon be forming an alliance in readiness for 2022.

To them, he is the best bet for the country, judging by his sober kind of leadership and the fact that he has no bad blood with any leader, meaning that he will not be seeking to settle scores once in power.

"There is a lot going on behind the scenes and a winning team will be unveiled. If there is anyone who cannot see or hear, then they should be able to feel all pointers of the direction the country is heading to politically," ANC Deputy Party Leader Ayub Savula, who is also the Lugari MP, told the paper.

Raila, on the other hand, has remained silent on whether or not he will be taking his fifth shot at the top seat, even as his allies and critics term him a man preparing for another candidature.
