Why Raila Will Betray Uhuru After Elections – Kuria

  • Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria, has claimed that there already exists signs indicating that former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, will betray President Uhuru Kenyatta after the August 9 polls.

    In a post on his social media pages on Saturday, April 9, Kuria argued that the storm within Azimio-One Kenya coalition was a forewarning on how Raila will stamp authority over his allies.

    The lawmaker detailed that Raila will not settle a small share of the government after sacrificing for years to assume power.

    “In the unlikely event Raila becomes President, he will do Uhuru Kenyatta a good one.

    “So Uhuru thinks he will get 40 per cent of government and Kalonzo (Musyoka of Wiper) 30 per cent and Raila is left to share 30 per cent among his ODM base after fighting for 60 years to be President between himself and his father? Kuria wondered. 

    He further underlined that the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader is a political mastermind and enigma who understands the need to change tactics often. 

    In an analogy, Kuria alleged that the ODM boss helped Congo’s President, Felix Tshisekedi get full control of the government in 2019. This reportedly led to the fallout between the incumbent president and his predecessor, Joseph Kabila. 

    “It was Raila Odinga who chartered a plane to DRC to coach Felix Tshisekedi on how to fix Joseph Kabila who thought Tshisekedi was his project,” Kuria claimed, allegations that have not yet been proven. 

    Raila Odinga and his team have also not yet addressed the issues as claimed by Kuria. 

    Kuria’s statement comes amidst cracks in Azimio la Umoja One Kenya over the distribution of government among coalition members.

    On April 6, a faction emerged in the coalition led by Machakos governor  Alfred Mutua and his Makueni counterpart Kibwana who insisted that they want a seat at the table. The Mwanzo Mpaya leaders stated that they were unaware of a power-sharing deal as was claimed by Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

     The statement made Raila move quickly to address their grievances with the leaders coming to an agreement on the coalition agreement document and how the coalition will be run. 

    In the past few weeks, Raila allies from the Mt Kenya region insisted that they will not push for the running mate slot insisting that were only interested in getting a fair share of government.

    “For us, we just want a fair share of government. Our support for Raila is unconditional. What we contribute to that government, we will just want a share,” David Murathe, Jubilee Vice-Chairperson stated in an interview on Citizen TV.
