BBI Will Give Uhurua Safeguard to do What he Wants, Political Analyst Says

Political analyst Dismus Mokua has contended that the handshake has will give President Uhuru Kenyatta the insurance to do what he wants.

Through his tweet, Mr Mokua tweeted that the head of state has the numbers to push through his agenda in both houses of parliament without having to worry about defeat.

He cited the ouster of former Kiambu county boss Ferdinand Waititu from his position as governor, which was supported by senators widely regarded as the allies of the head of state and his long-time adversary Raila Odinga.

"The BBI or the handshake has given President Uhuru Kenyatta good insurance to do whatever he wants to do. When he decides with his brother Raila Odinga to push a particular agenda, they are going to achieve the objective. So even if members of Tangatanga in the National Assembly and Senate do not want to play ball,, this has demonstrated to Kenyans that if the two want to push a particular agenda it will go through, " Analyst Mokua said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Odinga shook hands in a dramatic display of reconciliation in 2018, reducing the months-long tensions that the country was grappling with.

Their allies in the Senate have vowed to support whatever legislative agenda they may have giving the head of state the ability to have his way in the houses of parliament.
