ODM politicians have also laid blame on President Uhuru’s handlers for attempting to play the head of state’s handshake partner. Speaking yesterday at a funeral, Siaya senator James Orengo warned the individuals, accusing them of trying to play games on the ODM party leader.

Their outcry came after the Njuri Ncheke clan elders installed National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi as Mt Kenya’s spokesman. The installation ceremony was set to be graced by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, whom the ODM officials now think is Uhuru’s preferred candidate in the 2022 presidential elections. Politicians allied to the President however distanced themselves from the ceremony. Nominated MP Maina Kamanda accused Speaker Justin Muturi of attempting to dethrone Uhuru as the region’s spokesman.
The President is yet to announce his preferred candidate, whom he has umpteenth times claimed will be a shock to the nation. He however declared that the country should now be led by Kenyan outside the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin tribe. His assertion seemed to have poured cold water on Deputy President William Ruto’s quest for the presidency.
