President Uhuru Kenyatta has set aside whatever doubts that may have been lingering that he does not want his deputy William Ruto to succeed him as president. The president has openly claimed in the past that he is not backing anyone for the presidency but it’s clear from the recent closed-door meeting in Mombasa that he would rather leave power to one of them than his deputy.

President Uhuru Kenyatta may be too late in trying to revive the NASA flagship, already dead and buried. DP Ruto’s allies have derided the president wondering why he is “looking for the living among the dead” The DP’s allies have urged the president to stop being the “outsider who weeps louder than the bereaved!” The so-called principals, they say have already “buried” NASA and even a funeral ceremony was held.

However political watchers are warning DP Ruto to prepare for a massive offensive if “former NASA” principals stick together. The captain of the 2017 flagship that nearly ran away with the top prize Raila Odinga says he still has a “full armoury” not one bullet as opponents claim.

According to State House, the leaders had a “consultative” meeting to discuss several subjects touching on the “state of the nation” of course in the absence of DP Ruto. Those familiar with the politics of “consultations” in Kenya don’t need to read between the lines to get its full implications. The president has barely a year left in office, yet here he is being the commander in chief, hosting former bitter political foes.

Opposition figures have already made it clear that NASA is dead and buried, they have said so in separate letters addressed to the registrar of political parties, so why is Uhuru Kenyatta splitting hairs over an outfit whose owners no longer needs it?

DP Ruto allies now fully appreciate the enormity of challenges facing them without reciprocal support from the man they backed almost to a man in 2013-2017 including repeat polls. Sources at the Mombasa meeting told The Weekly Vision that president Uhuru urged “NASA” to remain united or face defeat in the 2022 General Election. During the meeting, Uhuru asked the leaders to bury the hatchet for the sake of “defeating Ruto”.
