Beleaguered political scientist and NYS chief consultant Mutahi Ngunyi has spoken again. This time, he says the reason why Raila Odinga will not be President is because of the words that were spelled by his father before he passed on.
According to Ngunyi Jaramogi sold his birthright to Mzee Jommo Kenyatta in 1963 when he declined to take over at the helm of affairs from the colonial masters until Kenyatta is released from custody.
When Jaramogi and his team were asked to organize themselves and form a government, he turned down the offer saying the rightful owner of the mantle was Jommo and that he be released to take over.
“If Jaramogi knew, he could have accepted to form a government and fight for Kenyatta release while president. The moment he let go of the lifetime opportunity, he sold his birthright to another person just like the Biblical Esau did to his younger brother Jacob” Said Ngunyi.
Speaking to BBC, Ngunyi said that Jaramogi unavailingly fought to reclaim the presidency but the luck had slipped. After fighting unsuccessfully, Jaramogi lost hope and even advised his son Raila not to fight for the same for obvious reasons that he also could not win.
“My son, these people did not allow me to be president even after I sacrificed myself for them. It is quite obvious they have tested the presidency, they know its fruits and will never allow us there” Added Ngunyi.
Ngunyi said the Odingas have risen to their highest government positions and cannot go past that.
