Opinion: The Dynasties are in it for the long-con

Now, it’s revealed that the Kenya African National Union (KANU) and Jubilee Party is seeking a Post-Election coalition. This is happening during this week, as the letters are leaked. They are showing the parties are starting to work together. This means that Gideon Moi (KANU), the son of Daniel Arap Moi is scheming ahead with Uhuru Kenyatta (Jubilee Party), the son of Jomo Kenyatta.

So, here we are the Handshake between Kenyatta and Odinga sidelined the Tanga Tanga. The Orange Democratic Movement got an upper-hand, as the purge on allies of Deputy President William Ruto has continued in the Senate and in Parliament. While, the likes of Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka have been able to get a honourable task in South Sudan. While Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula has both left the short end of the stick.

Now, they are all a bit on the rocks. Not that Raila Odinga and his men isn’t covered. They are at least in the halfway house until the elections. While Kenyatta continues scheming and making ways to secure the future. First he bought peace with Odinga and now he secures the future with Moi,

This is Kenyatta and Moi settling the score. They are planning ahead of 2022. This is how to sideline the Hustler Nation and Ruto. The DP was already pushed to the side with the handshake. Where the buying the peace and securing a ally by buying time and making Odinga a pseudo-government-official. That has worked like a tailspin. The carrot being working for a sort of constitutional change or a referendum, by making it look like a joint venture.

Also giving both of them a viable choice ahead of the election. Using Gideon as a shield, as Uhuru cannot govern another term. The trade is a boost Moi need to have any shot. Its a trade that makes sense for them. However, than there will be more friction between Tanga Tanga and if they are going out of the Jubilee creating something else ahead of the election.

ODM will still be in the limbo after this. They have already traded off some of the leverage. Unless, the ODM and Odinga ditches the BBI. Then, they will also suffer consequences of being nowhere. Yes, the will be the majority opposition in Parliament, but that’s it. They can’t use the previous election nor come with new solutions. Because, they don’t have the majority Jubilee has.

Now, that Jubilee have aligned itself with KANU. We are seeing that both Tanga Tanga and ODM is sidelined. The whole former NASA and CORD isn’t there. They are all outplayed and has little to give. Unless, they are able to forge a grander plan and a manifesto, which grasps the public ahead of 2022. These men are clearly out there fishing, but Odinga hasn’t saved them and neither will Kenyatta.

Moi has with this made himself very relevant. His father is someone Kenyatta and Ruto went to for advice. Surely, they now see it as fit to forge away for Gideon. If the public will give another dynasty ago. That is something the time will tell. Odinga is surely still the Baba of many and has able to switch the coin plenty of times. However, will he be able to sell a new “Canaan” away from the BBI?

I have a hard time seeing that, unless his that conning and wise. That he turns this around and can spin the wheel from his pseudo-government-official environment into a reformer again. Since, his sort of traded with the peace gathering and the whole BBI.

Kenyatta is the one for now, who does the moves of a victor. However, that means he still need the biggest support of Jubilee behind him. Even if the Tanga Tanga flees. They got to figure if they will accept a dynasty ticket. That is not easy, because they supposed to be loyal to Ruto.

The losers here for the long-con is Odinga and Ruto. Unless, Odinga accept his half-way house and seems content with those prospects. However, Ruto is losing and quickly. Sooner or later, the KANU representatives will be upgraded into offices and then the Tanga Tanga will be taken out. That is just a matter of time. As a warning of the shifting alliances ahead of 2022. Peace.
