According to sources, the fact that President Uhuru Kenyatta is not publicly campaigning for ODM leader Raila Odinga does not mean that he is not attempting to secure his presidency in August.
Uhuru was expected to receive former Prime Minister Kenyatta’s support in his hometown of Mt Kenya soon, but that support has been withdrawn after it was determined that it would be a bad idea.
However, it appears that Uhuru is still working behind the scenes to ensure Raila and his colleague Martha Karua can attend the State House in August.
The high court made the decision to withdraw Raila’s campaign, both internally and externally, because it believed it would be the responsibility of the Azimio La Umoja chief, particularly in the affluent Mt.
“It was making Azimio’s access to Mt Kenya difficult.” “The court was still hostile to the manager (Uhuru),” according to The Star.
According to the source, the initial plan was to remove Raila’s ‘Project’ coupon, which he appeared to have since Uhuru first demonstrated importance in his position.
According to the source, Uhuru will mention Raila whenever he presents development plans in Mt Kenya, but the marketing will be handled by Karua.
“He (Uhuru) is free to keep reminding Kenyans to vote for Raila whenever he considers the many jobs he has completed during his tenure,” he said.
Prior to the ruling, the President began to support Raila, Kibera, Kirinyaga, and Nakuru County by warning Kenyans not to appoint his deputy, William Ruto.
