ODM chairman John Mbadi has said President Uhuru Kenyatta may betray Raila Odinga come 2022 despite their famous handshake.
The Suba South MP said betrayal was normal in politics and insisted the Opposition outfit was ready for anything.
“Mt Kenya will play a key role in the succession politics. But we are already immune to emotions and politics of betrayal. Uhuru needs Raila for the handshake objectives to come true,” said Mbadi.
The vocal lawmaker also clarified on claims that ODM members had been sent into a panic mode after rumours surfaced that Raila and Uhuru were not on good terms.
“There should be no panic. Betrayal is part of politics and it depends on circumstances, politics and interests. The handshake gave Uhuru the calm to rule the country,” he was quoted by The Standard.
Mbadi further said the success or failure of the handshake depended on the two principals.
He, however, noted Raila had built a solid support base over the years and was not worried about the plans the so called system had for him.
