Deputy President William Ruto is staring at political disaster comes August if events at State House this week are anything to go by. A meeting at the Statehouse called and hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta brought together all Azmio allied MPs, also in attendance was former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Although Ruto’s top aides shrugged off the threat of the Azimio “Super Alliance”, insiders say his trusted political strategists are in a panic mode! The DP’s misgiving over President Kenyatta’s support for Raila Odinga seems to have received the backing from ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.

Mr Mudavadi accuses the head of state of failing to be a neutral arbiter and is instead using a public office to campaign for one of the presidential aspirants. Key allies of Ruto in Central Kenya including the hospitalized Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and senator Irungu Kangata have accused the president of failing to manage his succession.

Sources intimated that after the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) refused to play ball, Mr Odinga’s team is said to have decided go after individual leaders within the group for a deal

 Early last year Senator Kngata wrote a letter to the head of state in which he claimed: “selling Mr Odinga” in Mount Kenya was impossible! MP Ndindi Nyoro, Nakuru senator Sarah Kihika, and Meru senator Mithika Linturi dismissed the “super alliance” as a futile bid to protect “ill-gotten wealth.”

At State House, a visibly relaxed President Kenyatta who appears to have put on a lot of weight waved aside protests from “noise makers” saying the government is firmly on track to deliver on its manifesto. He was backed by Mr Odinga who spoke as he looked around a building he hopes to occupy come August! President Kenyatta urged the senate to fast track the coalition law bill so parties can be free to merge before the August poll.

Sources intimated that after the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) refused to play ball, Mr Odinga’s team is said to have decided go after individual OKA leaders within the group. Fireworks are expected at the Azmio rally in Thika today which could see several key defections from OKA further deflating whatever clout it has.
