The battle to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is heating up, with Deputy President William Ruto and Raila Odinga emerging as the most likely candidates to become Kenya’s next president.
And now, only hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the contentious Coalition Ammendment Bill into law, Raila Odinga has received bad news.
According to Nation, the President has now opened the presidential election to anyone who can come up with the greatest strategy.
The coalition bill is also said to have given a lifeline to other coalitions such as the One Kenya Alliance led by Kalonzo Musyoka and Gideon Moi, as well as the Kenya Kwanza alliance led by Deputy President William Ruto of the United Democratic Party, Musalia Mudavadi of the African National Congress, and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya.
This is a major setback for Raila Odinga, who had hoped that the Coalition Bill would work in his favor once it was passed, but now his competitors, Deputy President William Ruto and OKA, are taking advantage of it.
