RAILA ODINGA’s 2017 secret proposal to Uhuru exposed - RUTO will hang if he hears thisCounty Politics, News 16:13
Thursday November 3, 2016 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga could be planning to have President Uhuru Kenyatta as his running mate in 2017 after which he will support him for the Presidency in 2022 until 2032.
This was revealed by Raila’s former special advisor, Isaac Mwaura, who is a nominated MP, and among those expelled from ODM for joining Uhuru/ Ruto’s Jubilee.
According to Mwaura, Raila is intending to have Mr. Kenyatta as his running mate in the 2017 elections since he (Uhuru) was "too young to retire after two terms".
He revealed that Raila Odinga told him that he was only interested in one term in office and so in 2022, he will step down and support Kenyatta for Presidency for the next two terms.
“Raila Odinga had suggested to me that Uhuru Kenyatta be his running mate in the next elections, arguing that Uhuru will retire so young and will have nothing to do. If this were to work, Uhuru would be Raila's running mate for one term and then he could run for another two terms since the Constitution only talks of two consecutive terms,” Mwaura claimed.
Mwaura further divulged that Odinga also wanted to push for the creation of the Prime Minister’s post in order to get into Government if the first plan failed.
“The other option he had was to create the position of Premier,” he said.
