Murang'a County governor Dr Irungu Kang’ata has sent a stern warning to former prime minister Raila Odinga over his political career.
In his article on a local daily, the United Democratic Alliance party governor noted that the ODM boss must change his strategies or fade off.
He argued that Raila has become predictable and there is nothing new in his strategies. He cited the 1997 presidential elections which Raila lost, he later had a truce with the then president Daniel Moi.
Kang’ata also cited the 2007 general elections which Raila lost to Kibaki, through demonstrations they formed a coalition government with Kibaki. The same he says happened in 2017 when Raila had handshake with the then president Uhuru Kenyatta after boycotting the general elections.
Kang’ata claimed that Raila's strategy is to vie for the presidency, lose, call for demonstrations and then be absorbed in government, however, he warned that the same will not work with President Wiliam Ruto.
Kang'ata argued that Ruto has got numbers in all the two Houses that will push his agenda and can not be scared of Raila's Threats. He also opined that Ruto built a broad coalition with support of major parts of the region.
He also noted that Ruto is young and energetic and is ready for any political battle unlike his predecessors.
Kang'ata also argued that Raila can not succeed since he has lost the victim card which he used to play, according to him, by government supporting his bid, the former prime minister lost his earlier strategy of crying foul over the deep state.
According to him Raila has also lost his support with many having other pressing issues far from the IEBC commisioners he is fighting for.
