Raila Odinga is among the presidential hopefuls who are dreaming of having their names written alongside Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel Arap Moi, Mwai Kibaki and Uhuru Kenyatta's. Unfortunately, getting that kind of an honor is not as easy as one thinks.
Of the political hurdles standing between him and the house on the hill top is the self crowned Chief Hustler William Ruto. The latter's political aggressiveness and endearing nature to the country's downtrodden has sent shivers to Agwambo's camp.
How will the veteran solve Ruto's puzzle and make a smooth ride to statehouse? COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli had this answered long time ago. In one of his advisory letters to opposition leaders weeks ago, the trade unionist called Jakom, MaDvd, Man Stevo and Man Weta to reunite for a worthy course.
Will Atwoli's call surmount to a worth course? Definitely yes. Recent findings done by Radio Africa Group has shown that Raila will receive a drubbing beating from Samoei but he has a chance to redeem himself and save his face, how is that possible?
From the findings, Raila has a chance of 14.2% of unseating Kenyatta II, his fierce competitor leads with a whooping 42.7%. How can Jakom close that range? By doing what Atwoli recommended.
With a united opposition front, Baba will welcome more other bigwigs from other regions. That way, he will raise a tsunami that will not spare the man from Sugoi. As the street sage goes; wanaume ni kuongea and should they agree to work together, Raila will do what he is best at.
To Western Kenya, he will train, arm and dispatch MaDvd and Wetangula. Moi's protégé will go to Rift Valley with Kalonzo taking Eastern Kenya.
Other lieutenants like Joho and Waiguru will lead pro-Raila campaigns in their respective turfs. As the Swahili maxim goes; tone na tone huwa mchirizi and that way, Baba will give Ruto a beating worth a political wailing.
