Setback For Raila as Uhuru's Confidants Reportedly Plan to Support Another Presidential Aspirant

President Uhuru Kenyatta has clearly picked Raila Odinga as his successor in the 2022 presidential elections, based on recent political events,where President Uhuru's allies have been accompanying Raila to various political events.

With Uhuru determined to prevent DP Ruto from assuming power in 2022, Raila appears to be the only one who can stand up against the DP, which has prompted the Head of State to back the former premier.

Those close to Mutahi Kagwe, the Cabinet Secretary for Health, have revealed that the popular CS is planning to run for presidency in 2022.

According to sources, CS Mutahi Kagwe has the backing of President Uhuru Kenyatta's State House confidants, who are willing to sponsor his presidential campaign in 2022.

Those pushing for Kagwe to run for president are said to have been influenced by Mutahi's handling of the Covid-19 outbreak, as well as his political experience and ability to speak to the general public.

This is a major setback for Raila Odinga because it indicates that, despite President Uhuru Kenyatta's explicit vow to back him in 2022, some of his closest allies are siding with Mutai Kagwe.
