Just like I said in my Tweet, President Kenyatta is a man under siege . The son of Jomo is not sure whether Ruto will support him come 2017 or not . That is why he has been working on a formula to win the Substantial Luhya Voting bloc that is still under the control of CORD .
President Uhuru Sidelined the Luhya Community but due to the uncertain political future, he started considering them . He even appointed Eugene Wamalwa, Kenneth Marende and others . He also bailed out Mumias Sugar and promised the region lots of goodies if they remain close to him .
This Raila Odinga and he has been doing all he can to remain the Region’s Kingmaker. Raila is expected to Vie for president come 2017 . The Sugar deal between Kenya and Uganda is poisoned chalice and Raila will use this opportunity to discredit Uhuru the way Ruto used the Mau evictions against him .
Raila will obviously tell the Western Region voters that Uhuru just wants to use them and dump them . He will tell them that the son of Jomo would have not signed the Sugar deal if he respected and valued them . Raila, the spin master will tell the Western Region Voters that Uhuru sidelined the Luhyas and the recent appointments are meant to lure them Vot for him come 2017 .
This is a big political war that we are waiting to see how it unfolds .
