Peter Kenneth’s is case of how politically organized and efficient the House of Mumbi is.It’s something that has been replayed over and over again as a seamless and quiet political succession and transition within the House of Mumbi.
We saw it when Uhuru Kenyatta ran for the presidency in 2002 against Kibaki purposely to introduce himself to the Republic.He stepped back in 2007 to support muthamaki,with Kibaki offering him in his cabinet a position powerful enough to keep him in the front row of Kibaki succession politics.When Kibaki left in 2013,Uhuru Kenyatta was left with the baton and is now the president.
Peter Kenneth then ran against Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013,again majorly to introduce himself to the Republic.He’s stepped back now and is supporting Uhuru Kenyatta for his second term,and he’s strategically being positioned in the front row of Kenyatta succession.
Whichever position he settles for,whether Muranga Governorship or Nairobi Governorship, I tell you he’ll get it.The House of Mumbi will do everything and anything it takes to ensure he gets it.Should he settle on Nairobi Governorship,then Dr.Evans Kidero will have no otherwise but to pack his bags and relocate to Homa Bay-as I’ve always advised him to.He won’t manage to beat Peter Kenneth in Nairobi.
When Uhuru Kenyatta will be leaving in 2022,Peter Kenneth will be left with the Mt.Kenya baton.Forget about William Ruto.Ruto is a serious joker.He’ll be crying in the latrine when that time comes.We shall talk about 2022 when that time comes.
Meanwhile,in the House of Ramogi Ajwan’g into which I was born,it’s sacrilegious to even imagine anybody else other the father of democracy being a presidential material,leave alone a presidential candidate.
He’s been the only presidential material from our house these past over 20years post his father’s death.Before that,his father was the only one.
Before you even imagine running against him to introduce yourself to the Kenyan voters,your big head shall have been smashed with huge rocks into sycophancy.
