Is Ruto capable of convincing US to Ban Raila? Analyst explain

Days after reports alleging that Kenya Kwanza government has plans to tame Odinga from travelling abroad analyst have explained the impacts of this move. Earlier, president Ruto claimed that if Odinga continues holding his protest he will be ban from travelling out of the country.

Ruto further stated that the protest by Odinga and his team is meant to distrupt the peace and stability of Kenya Kwanza.

Due to this move by the government, the analyst explained that such countries could limit an individual's travelling based on their customs, including Visa requirements.Edwin Kegoli, a political analyst said that banning Raila would be inconsequential as he would resort to causing more havoc at home.

“What would it cost Odinga if he is not to fly out or be treated as a special person abroad? Raila has been through worse in his political journey and such a move by the government would only embolden him and heighten his activities,” he stated.

“Ruto's government is panicking about Raila's activities, hence resorting to sanctioning strategies. This gives Raila more impetus to push harder as it means he is making serious headway,” Martin Andati added.

However analyst Gachie cast doubts that Kenya Kwanza would pursue such an endeavour given the magnitude of the burden of proving that Odinga's actions warranted such sanctions.

“I doubt that would be possible, and if any foreign power would want to block Raila Odinga from accessing their countries on such grounds.

"Raila is not wanted or listed, and all he has been doing is within his rights and mandate to keep the government in check," he said.
