The late president Moi was known as the proffesor of politics, and he was loved and hated at the same time. He ruled Kenya for 24 years and many leaders saw him as an engima in Kenyan politics. He mentored many national leaders we have in Kenya today. Towards his term coming to the end, he shocked many when he endorsed current president Uhuru Kenyatta as the man to succeed him.
Moi once said Kanu will rule Kenya for 100 years, and since he retired for active politics in 2002, President Kibaki and Uhuru have both served in Kanu government. "Chama cha Kanu ni chama cha wenyewe," he said.
With 2022 elections just around the corner, many candidates have expressed their interests for the top seat. William Ruto and Former Prime minister Raila Odinga are seen as part of candidates that want to succeed President Uhuru, both of them have worked in Kanu government a move that some Kenyans forget.
So far 19 years of ruling have been covered by leaders who once served in Kanu. Towards each election period, politicians form new parties and come up with manifesto's that Kenyans want to hear. With now Kenyans having in mind the two as their favourite candidates, this is a point to prove Moi's prophecy still lives on.
Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka were also in president Moi's government, and they have also expressed their interest for the top seat come 2022. The next president likely to come from the four leaders, Moi's prophecy will still be fullfilled that Kanu will rule for 100 years.
Do you agree with president Moi's prophecy that Kanu will rule Kenya for 100 years?
