Thursday September 26, 2019-Former Mwingi Central Member of Parliament, Joe Mutambu, has claimed that only Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga can determine the Kenyan politics.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mutambu claimed that the looming 2022 General Elections will revolve around him, and its outcome will depend on his input, and whether or not he will participate.
According to him, it is only Raila who determines the polls and the entire political debate in Kenya, terming him the strongest single politician in Kenya, bigger than all the others.
"(Mtu wa kwanza anadetermine siasa ya Kenya, tupende tusipende, ni Raila Odinga. Na hatuna mtu mwingine mwenye hiyo kipawa) The first person who determines the Kenyan politics, whether we like it or not, is Raila Odinga. No one else has that gift,” stated Mutambu.
The politician who is a member of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee Party suggested that Raila is equally stronger than Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto politically.
He termed Raila the only person who can immediately switch his supporters to his party of liking and make them automatically support his preferred aspirant, a gift the two lack.
On Wiper Democratic Movement (ODM) Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, he observed that the former Vice President is below all the three, and is more of a tribal kingpin than a national leader.
"Even when forming political parties they can’t match Raila's power, Kalonzo is on the other hand just making rounds Ukambani, he cannot go past there (Hata Uhuru na Ruto wakiunda Chama hawawezi pata ile uzito ya Raila. Kalonzo naye hawezi toka pale Ukambani, anazungukia tu pale)," he added.
