Jubilee may have many problems, Scandals may be erupting like pimples on a teenager’s face… but one thing is for sure- as long as Uhuru and Ruto stick together… there is no way- I mean no way Raila and his team would ever beat them in a free and fair elections.
First, it takes at least two years for any political machinery to gel into a massive movement. CORD still has deep cracks. Old Man Raila has refused to retire.Handsome boy Kalonzo believes that he was chosen by God to lead Kenya- and there is no way he is going to easily support Raila in the coming election- which is about 20 months from now. Wetangula- a man that has hardly any support beyond Bungoma wants to lead by virtue of “representing 6 million Luyhias”.
Elections are won based on numbers. Elections in Kenya are not about issues. Elections are won based on turnout. So after spending five years lamenting how elections were stolen in 2013- the opposition has not yet come up with a strategy. They will probably cobble up some outfit three months before elections- then get defeated badly in 2017- Then in 2018 the campaign to have Raila defeat Ruto in 2022 will begin… and the story continues.
