National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale has warned ODM party leader Raila Odinga that a shocker is coming his way.

While opining on the 2022 succession race, Duale reiterated that President Uhuru Kenyatta will back DP William Ruto and Odinga will be left out in the cold.

“Mark my words, Jubilee will be one, Uhuru Kenyatta will back William Ruto. All these stories, my friend, for you to go to a merger, you must call a National Delegates Conference (NDC) after National Executive Council (NEC) and National Governing Council (NGC) which is yet to happen,” he said.

Speculation is rife that the President might back the former Prime Minister in the next election after their newly found ‘bromance’ but Duale maintained that there is a secret card that will pulled out at the right time.

“You think you have fixed William Ruto, you will be shocked. ‘Baba’ (Raila) will be shocked. There is that secret card between Uhuru and Ruto,” added Duale.

Further, he dismissed talk of formation of a Government of National Unity (GNU) post coronavirus saying it is unconstitutional.

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, BBI rallies had gathered speed and politicians were already calculating their next moves.

While some Jubilee Party legislators strongly opposed it, others were firmly in the mix under the slogan ‘Nobody can stop reggae.’

They claimed the BBI aimed at uniting Kenyans but the more they held the rallies the more it seemed like something was brewing underneath.

ODM chairman John Mbadi, on his part, dismissed Duale saying politics is about ‘what agenda will sell.’

“There is nothing secret about politics. Politics is about what agenda will sell. In fact those who have secret cards don’t say them.

“The moment you say you have a secret card, it ceases to be secret,” he remarked.
