With exactly ten months to the 2022 general elections, politicians are aligning themselves to what they see as a politically correct discourse. Nyandarua governor, Honourable Francis Kimemia, made an admission on a live television interview. "The deep state exists and it is deeper than deep. If two presidential candidates tie at 50-50, the deep states' preference will will win" said Kimemia.
The embattled Third Way Alliance party leader, Dr Ekuru Aukot, has now threatened to sue the governor. He claims that his admission on the deep state could deter voters from voting. According to Aukot, the Kenyan voters will be discouraged from voting with the notion that the deep state will decide who will win elections.
Ekuru Aukot has further invited investigative agencies to probe the governor's statements. He further adds that the statements amount to incitement and should not be taken lightly. In your own opinion, do you think the deep state really exists? And if it does, does it influence the outcome of an election?
