Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has taken a dig at Raila Odinga indicating that the Opposition leader has no plan.

Mr Ngunyi said that the NASA leader is gambling with several ideas to see which one will work and end up frustrating President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee Government.

“I would like to inform the country that Raila has no plan and if there is anyone outside there with a copy of Raila’s plan, I invite them to share with us. In my view Raila is just a gambler and he is gambling with ideas to see which one will work…from economic sabotage to secession and interim government,” Ngunyi pointed out.

“All these are gambles in search of one good luck and this is why Uhuru should give Raila the ‘madharau’ card. Jubilee went to sleep and they were woken up by the Maraga shock and they seem to be repeating the same sleeping sickness after the October victory,” he added.

Ngunyi stated that President-elect Uhuru must ensure that he changes the Constitution as part of his legacy.

“Constitutional change is inevitable, our Constitution is a patch work of jokes. The man who changes the Constitution is the man who will heal the country and Uhuru must do this as part of his legacy,” he said.

On the secession debate, the controversial analyst went ahead to say that the luo nation should be allowed to secede and join Uganda.

The National Super Alliance (NASA) announced on Monday its welcome plan for Raila, who is expected to jet back in the country on Friday, November 17, 2017.

The coalition invited supporters to a major rally at the Kamukunji Grounds in Kamukunji Constituency on Thursday, November 16.

According to Siaya Senator James Orengo, former senators Boni Khalwale and Johnstone Muthama, the rally will be a dress rehearsal for the Friday grand welcome.

“We welcome all Kenyans to this grand Thursday rally and the arrival party on Friday. All these are part of our continuing journey of ensuring electoral justice and putting an end to the evil culture of sham elections with pre-determined outcomes,” the NASA leaders said in a joint statement.

Raila, who left the county on Tuesday last week, held several meetings in the US to explain the political stalemate in the country.

On Thursday, the former Prime Minister addressed hundreds of attendants at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington where he hit out at foreign envoys in Kenya for supporting the election of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

The former Prime Minister blamed the envoys for contributing towards the election crisis in the country.

“The envoys efforts up to now have not succeeded in diffusing the crisis. Let me be blunt again. They sometimes have contributed to the problem.

“I have come to Washington to convey a simple message: We need a fuller engagement from the many arms of governance that your country possesses to assist envoys based in Nairobi,” said Raila.
