Before making a political comeback in 2027, political figures who supported the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp and its candidate Raila Odinga during the presidential elections on August 9 are already settling down in the opposition.
The ODM deputy party leader Wycliffe Oparanya and the chairman of Raila's presidential campaign board Ndiritu Muriithi expressed confidence that they would hold influential positions in Raila's administration and promised to hold Ruto's administration in check till 2027.
Oparanya, who was selected as the Treasury CS even before the elections, was cited by the Nation on Monday as saying that he is now concentrating on business and that he will play the opposition and be on the and will appear on the upcoming elections' presidential ballot.
"I'm prepared to play the other side and won't be looking for employment anywhere. I've been juggling business and politics, so I'm back to my businesses "Oparanya stated.
Although he has already returned to the private sector, Muriithi, who lost his attempt for re-election as governor of Laikipia to a UDA candidate, stated that he will remain active in the public sphere.
"I'm returning to the private sector, but I'll return in 2027. One electoral cycle of defeat is not the end of the world."
