Monday June 17, 2019 - Former Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga is ready to take the leadership mantle from President Uhuru Kenyatta upon his retirement, Kitutu Chache South MP, Richard Onyonka, has said.
According to Onyonka, Raila, who doubles up as the African Union Special Envoy, has learned from his past mistakes and he is ready to continue with Uhuru’s legacy.
He also hailed Raila as a statesman who wishes nothing but the best for Kenya.
He further said that under the leadership of the opposition leader, Kenya will not be the same again.
“Raila is the most qualified person in the country to become President of Kenya among his equals.”
“He has learned from his mistakes.”
“I believe in our country today, he is seen as a statesman the same position Mwai Kibaki held before he took over power in 2002,” Onyonka stated.
This comes two days after National Majority Leader, John Mbadi, and Siaya Senator James Orengo, who spoke during the burial of Kisumu Governor, Anyang Nyong’o’s mother, urged President Uhuru Kenyatta not to leave power to a corrupt individual but someone of Raila’s stature.
