Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has told President Uhuru Kenyatta to be wary of CORD leader Raila Odinga‘s strategy to remove him from office in the 2017 General Election.
Mr Ngunyi noted that the well-orchestrated National Super Alliance (NASA) could just be the master plan that would send him and his Deputy William Ruto home.
He advised the Head of State stating that unlike his Jubilee Party which is seemingly a “monopoly” Mr Odinga’s NASA was all-inclusive and could just work more successfully.
The professor pointed out that NASA might play out like NARC which sent former President Daniel Moi home after 24 years at the helm of the country’s leadership.
“Uhuru’s Presidency has been reduced to a monopoly of two politicians. It is a Ferrari presidency in my view with only two seats. But NASA is proposing a matatu Presidency where pickpockets and are all welcome. Those are attractive to many people,” Ngunyi said.
Ngunyi opined that Kenyatta was seemingly more focussed on agendas instead of healing relationships in the country.
“If the wave of change hits Kenya, Raila will not win, Uhuru will lose. And Uhuru will have worked very hard to lose. But if he loses, it will be for two reasons. One is because he emphasised on things over relationships. Like Kibaki in 2007 who revived the economy of a collapsed country, Uhuru will have given us things but will have failed to heal the National wounds,” he stated.
The political analyst advised that Kenyatta and his Jubilee Party should copy and paste NASA’s plan since it is the best one to secure the top seat in 2017. However, he highlighted that the President ought to implement it better than the Opposition.
Ngunyi warned Kenyatta that the tyranny of numbers theory he worked with in the 2013 polls would not work for him this time round adding that a change of tact was imperative.
He further told Kenyatta that it was critical for him to win decisively in the much-awaited election to avoid a runoff with NASA, which will with no doubt push for a Coalition Government.
