Uhuru-Raila's "Earthquake" To Hit Kenya Soon As Finer Details Emerge Ahead Of August Ninth Polls

Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Amolo Odinga is among the key political bigwigs who have paraded themselves to succeed President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta when his term comes to an end come August this year.Mr Odinga who has for a very long time been a fierce critic of President Kenyatta,now seems to be enjoying a cordial working relationship with the Head of State with the duo equally at good books with each other.

This newfound bromance between the two can be attributed to their infamous March 2018 handshake that brought an end to political unrest and animosity that had rocked the country after the controversial 2017 presidential elections.

After his relationship with his Deputy, William. Samoei Ruto seemingly turned coarsy,there have been growing rumours that the Head of State may eventually endorse ODM leader as his preffered heir,something that has publicly played out in numerous events graced by the two handshake brothers.

They say that action speaks louder than words.To effect the above perception and notion that seems to be metarmorphosising into reality, Uhuru's Jubilee rulling party has come clean and set the record straight without blinking an eye over their next possible move.

Borrowing the words from ANC Party Leader Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi's mouth,what Jubilee Party opts to do soon can equally be likened to a political earthquake just like the one Kenya seemingly experienced in Bomas of Kenya last Sunday during ANC's National Delegates Conference.

Through it's Vice Chairman David Murathe, Jubilee Party has announced that it would soon convene it's National Delegates Conference at Kenyatta International Conference Center to unveil there preffered presidential candidate.This will occur simultaneously with ODM's that is scheduled for Bomas of Kenya though the exact dates of these events remain scanty.

Murathe further revealed that the twin NDC's would further culminate into a joint mega meeting at Nyayo National Stadium where Raila Amolo Odinga would formally be crowded as the flagbearer of the giant Azimio La Umoja Movement.

The question that still remains lingering in the minds of many Kenyans,I included,is whether President Uhuru Kenyatta would grace the event and eventually pronounce the highly speculated and anticipated "Raila Tosha".Only time will tell.
