Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has indicated that Raila Odinga will certainly be the sixth President of Kenya, albeit a ceremonial figure.
According to Mutahi, Raila’s ability to foretell change is unmatched hence his view on the rumoured referendum will certainly come to pass.
“Regarding the politics of change, Raila is the grand-master. Nobody can smell change as freshly he does,” he stated.
Mutahi further opined that the ODM leader will certainly be in the next government “It is cast in stone”.
In his view, the referendum will create both a Ceremonial President and an Executive Prime Minister Position with Raila likely to take the latter.
As a Ceremonial President, Mutahi is for the idea that Raila’s roles will include presiding over public events including giving state honours and awards.
Besides, Raila will be also a symbol of national unity and figurehead like the Queen in the UK.
“His job will be to inspire patriotism. And at the age of 80-years, he will do this job with grace,” he stated.
Although exuding confidence on the referendum and the new positions, Mutahi was cagey on who will take that position.
