Political pundit Mutahi Ngunyi reckons that Deputy President William Ruto’s surest way to the heart of the masses was if he took up the vacuum left by Rail Odinga as the opposition figure.
In his weekly You-tube vlog, The Fifth Estate, Prof Ngunyi conveyed that Raila’s dalliance with the current regime, compounded by his new AU role had left a political vacuum in the opposition.
“If Raila is not around, there will be someone who will come and fill it. The exit of Raila from the opposition will create the rise of the hustler nation under Ruto. Ruto will fill the vacuum and he will become the next force.
He added: “It is not possible to run Kenya if Raila is in opposition. To run the country, Uhuru needs Raila. He has created a one-party dictatorship with Raila,” he stated.
He however said the new found brotherhood between the duo was good for the country as it had cool the political temperatures and had put the country on the right path.
Ngunyi and his team from Fort school of Governance noted that Uhuru needed Raila to point out issues his allies could not and such would provide much insight on national issues.
Earlier on Saturday, the duo (Uhuru and Raila) attended their first international event together during the opening of the 11th African Union Extraordinary Summit in Addis Ababa.
